Our ambitions

We are passionate about our business as a seed company and are proud to contribute to better food security in tropical countries for almost 40 years.

A pioneering and innovative company:

TECHNISEM was the first seed company to engage in the marketing of quality seeds to West Africa. Offering varieties adapted to the extreme conditions of tropical zones has gradually become a matter of course and has encouraged the company to develop its own breeding programs.

With undeniable success in its historical African market for almost 40 years, Technisem is now exploring new opportunities. Some of the varieties produced and distributed by Technisem, historically selected to adapt to hot African zones, are perfectly suited to the climates of the entire intertropical zone.

Supported by Bpifrance as part of an “International Accelerator” program, Technisem is strengthening its export development in new high-potential areas via its own platforms and is thus giving itself the means to position itself in new markets. Thanks to this strategy, Technisem aims to become a global player in the seed industry.

A multicultural society

“In 1985 we were the first to believe in the potential of Africa by offering quality vegetable seeds. Historically linked to this continent, our adventure continues today in other tropical areas of the world. It is with enthusiasm and respect that we make available to new markets the fruit of our know-how.”
