While the “Salon International de l’Agriculture 2015” has just closed its doors in Paris, Monsanto, a global provider of leading technology solutions and products that improves farm productivity, reaffirms its commitment to the European market of seeds. Monsanto’s strategy includes investments of €500 million over ten years to develop the company’s production capacity in Europe and thus meet the growing demand not only in the European region, but also at a global level.
Tiago Costa, Director of the seed business in France said: “France and wider Europe are key markets for our company. France is our first market in Europe and is therefore unavoidable. The long French tradition of farming, combined with local expertise, Monsanto has made France a leading producer for the European market. The seeds produced each year with the 2300 partner farmers are exported to 30 markets, contributing directly to the French trade balance. We intend to continue to grow our business and offer solutions that meet the needs of farmers, in France and in Europe “
France is still one of the leading agricultural markets in the world,
