In Auvergne, the home of the Cooperative, we are committed to various projects that aim to make Limagne Val d’Allier a zone of agriculture excellence, and to make Auvergne an attractive region.
We are partners in numerous development projects, among which the Céréales Vallée competitiveness cluster and the Regional Innovation Laboratory at the forefront. Limagrain is an active member of the scientific community, playing an important role in higher education and vocational training in the Auvergne region. The Group participates in the Foundation of the Université d’Auvergne, the SIGMA Foundation engineering school), the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Clermont (the Clermont Graduate School of Management) and more recently the Industry Trade Center, Hall 32 (operational in September 2019).
Limagrain works with regional trade organizations (ARIA, Coop de France ARA, CCI63, etc.), and scientific organizations (INRA, IRSTEA) and holds regular exchanges with government services and local authorities.
Limagrain is involved in the attractiveness of Auvergne by sponsoring the ASM Clermont Auvergne rugby club, the Chaîne des Puys - Faille de Limagne Foundation, recently listed as a Unesco World Heritage site, and by supporting the Auvergne Region brand.
For more than 50 years, our Group has been forming many scientific collaborations with public and private research laboratories all over the world. In Field Seeds, the Group is a majority shareholder in Biogemma for plant biotechnology, in Genective, a joint venture built with the KWS seed company to develop GMO corn traits, in Australian Grain Technology – the Australian leader for the breeding, development and distribution of innovative cereal varieties, and in Soltis – a joint venture formed with Euralis, specializing in sunflower research. In Vegetable Seeds, Limagrain is participating in plant biotechnology at KeyGene (Netherlands).
