Vilmorin-MKS becomes Vilmorin-Mikado

A year after Vilmorin SA and Mikado Kyowa Seed Co. Ltd united, the French-Japanese Business Unit of Limagrain, changes its name to become Vilmorin-Mikado. A name embodying the roots and carrying the values of the company.

"One year after our merger, the new Business Unit has inherited the original traits of each entity. Therefore, just like in a family, our name must reflect both our common values and our respective features", explains Rodolphe Millet, CEO of Vilmorin-Mikado. "Our French and Japanese roots make us stronger and constitute our identity. This is why we chose this new name for our company."

The new name of the company combines two seed companies:
  • Vilmorin: French seed company involved in the seed market for nearly 3 centuries and which became a global player in a decade.
  • Mikado: oldest Japanese seed company and the first to developed in Asia and in the world.
