100 years of experience

The history of Vandinter Semo goes back to the year 1914. In that year, Messrs Zwaan and De Wiljes started their business in seed production and seed trade in Scheemda, Groningen. Over 100 years and several name changes later, seed production and seed trade are still the most important core activities of the current Vandinter Semo. Admittedly, the modest seed trade firm from then has become one of the largest producers and processors of seeds in the Netherlands and far beyond. And also the range of services has expanded with seed cleaning, seed coating and seed packaging. Moreover, Vandinter Semo has a high-quality laboratory to support the breeding programme.
