Acting responsibly

Globalisation can lead to companies losing sight of their values and goals; Maïsadour Semences promotes a different approach. This is expressed by a desire to see economic development in its home region of the Landes in France.

This philosophy has also been carried over into our customer relations, where one of the aims is to help them build up their own local economy. You are welcome to come and visit the South West of France and see the impact of this contemporary, responsible approach in action.
