THE LIMAGRAIN COOPERATIVE

The Limagrain Cooperative is our parent company and nearly 1,500 farmer members of the Cooperative make up the main shareholders of our Group. The members or “cooperative partners” are at the same time partners, suppliers, and customers of their cooperative. Unlike certain traditional and anonymous shareholders, they are agricultural professionals and we know them.

Within the wide range of worldwide leaders in seeds dominated by large agro-chemical groups, we offer an unprecedented form of governance, drawing from our cooperative roots.

As committed cooperative members, these partners are above all entrepreneurs, more concerned with creating added value for their production than receiving dividends. They consider the Group’s growth over the long term.

Cooperation is part of our DNA because we are a company of men and women. Our development is guided by the desire for independence. We choose to re-inject a very significant portion of our profits into the company’s development. Our capital structure is stable, and we cannot be relocated. Instead of short-term gain, we prefer solid development to create value over the long term.

The Group is directed by a tandem of elected Farmer-Chairman and salaried CEO to encourage a range of viewpoints among Board Members and Top Executives. The model of Farmer-Chairman and salaried CEO is found at all levels within the Limagrain organisation (Divisions, Business Units and Subsidiaries). Decisions in the end are made by farmers.
