Key figures


Vilmorin North America


With the vocation to become a global seed company, the French-Japanese company Vilmorin-Mikado started its activity on the North American market in 1980, bringing the best of their products to the American and Canadian growers.

To increase their presence in this important market, Vilmorin-Mikado decided to invest in some well-known, successful local leafy companies, and became Vilmorin North America subsidiary. This local breeding approach is already paying off with many leafy varieties adapted to the various local conditions .


TeamThe operational merge between Vilmorin and Mikado Kyowa Seed created even more opportunities. This collaboration brought in different genetics and thus completed the product range.

With also the distribution of the Harris Morran brassicas in the main areas, Vilmorin North America is now one of the major players and attractive partner for the customers in the whole vegetable industry and for many different crops.
