A couple of things you should know

In 1997, we established our own operations in Zambia and in early 1998 acquired a 51% share in the Mozambican seed company, SEMOC (Sementes de Mocambique). During the same year, we established a new plant with Zimbabwe Export Processing Zone status, specifically for the processing of seed for export.

In 2000, Seed Co International Limited was formed in Botswana and Seed Co Malawi formed in Malawi in order to assist with development in Malawi. In 2001 a joint seed business, Syngenta Seed Co was established in South Africa with Syngenta seeds. In 2002 an office was also opened in Kenya to spearhead business development in East Africa. Later on, a subsidiary company called Quton was introduced and this organisation is highly involved in cotton seed production.

Currently Seed Co has operational units or supplies seed to a total of 13 African countries. Through this regional expansion and the proliferation of varieties across 13 countries in Africa, Seed Co can confidently and truly describe itself as the "The African Seed Company".
