The company’s headquarters are in the village of Rothwell in the North Lincolnshire Wolds, where our office and distribution facilities are based. The site is shared with our sister company Limagrain UK Ltd who breed and distribute varieties of agricultural seeds and distribute food ingredients.
Our teams of product development and sales personnel are based around the country and conduct detailed trials in new varieties from research and market the range to professional growers of vegetables in the UK. High investment in breeding and research within the Limagrain group of companies helps us to generate new genetics specifically tailored for the UK vegetable market.
The company sells vegetable seeds within the UK to the professional market. Customers include vegetable growers, plant raisers and packet seed companies. Our operations also include screening and development trials, to ensure that new products are fully tested under local conditions ahead of commercial launching.
Today the company is a market leader offering strong genetics from major brands like Hazera, Clause and Vilmorin. Our strongest products include field Brassica covering Cabbage (white, green, red, savoy, pointed and greens), Cauliflower (summer, autumn and winter) and Brussels sprouts. We also have a development programme for Broccoli which is currently undergoing UK evaluation. Other major strengths can be found in field salads including lettuce, radish, celery and bunched onions and rooted crops such as carrot, bulb onion, leeks, red beet, parsnip and more recently asparagus.
We introduce a large number of new products each year, always looking for new genetics that will improve product quality for the consumer and agronomic characteristics for the grower.
