At its foundation in 1982, the development of Semican was based on the production of cereals and the conditioning of seeds. With a steady growth in sales, it quickly became clear that to ensure the future of the company, we had to differentiate ourselves from other markets and other cereal suppliers.
The process began by establishing and by developing good business relationships with researchers, breeders and entrepreneurs of various organizations. This ongoing work has allowed us to offer exclusive varieties of cereals possessing exceptional characteristics and superior returns. This approach has also proved successful in forages allowing us to develop our exclusive ’’Optimum’’ and more recently our new range of Vitali-T cover crop and inter-crop mixtures.
In addition, the implantation of our Research Center has allowed us to increase our development efforts and start-up of exclusive performance varieties. This facility is especially adapted to the needs of today’s business.
Production and development of an integrated market has helped to sustain Semican’s trademark by offering increased profitability to producers in Canada, thanks to an access to niche markets such as those requiring malting barley, wheat and naked oats.
Our goal is still and will be, to offer products and varieties to maximize the profitability of producers. The work done by our Research professionals, and our agreements with the final users, achieves this goal. Our commitment for the future is to continue in our human Financial resources as well in the development of varieties, products, niche markets and new opportunities to offer an even more interesting partnership for companies here.
