THE SEED DIVISION CONTINUES TO PURSUE INTERNATIONAL GROWTH AND DEVELOP ITS BUSINESS IN FRANCE
The Seed Division, under its Euralis Semences brand, has mastered all activities in the chain: research, production and sales. Euralis Semences is focussed on 5 main species in Europe: maize, sunflower, rapeseed, soya and sorghum. The Seed Division invests 13% of its turnover in research and development. This research effort is backed up by powerful partnership strategies, such as with SOLTIS for sunflowers, EUROSORGHO for sorghum, and BIOGEMMA for genetic engineering. Our seeds undergo 12 quality controls, from the production field through to the sack which reaches the customer.
Positioned as close as possible to our markets, with 10 subsidiaries, we are constantly strengthening our historical position in France, in Western Europe and we are leading an internationally-successful development strategy.
