Limagrain

Known for Harris Moran, Clause, Hazera, Vilmorin and Mikado brands

Limagrain is an international cooperative specialising in seeds and cereal products. Headquartered in France, the history of the company dates to 1965, when local seed growers in the country, who had been producing seed since 1942, established a research facility to develop maize varieties. In 1975, Limagrain purchased Vilmorin, a company selling vegetable seeds. In the decades that followed, Limagrain gradually became one of the largest players in the seed industry, with activities spanning both field crops and vegetables. In index regions, the company operates through various business units: Hazera, HM Clause, Vilmorin-Mikado, Limagrain Africa, Limagrain Asia Pacific and Limagrain South America. Limagrain is now present in 57 countries.
