Seed grower Limagrain, based in Rilland, fertilizes and produces agricultural seedlings for the feed and agriculture and green industry.
Huub Beelen, Managing Director, Limagrain Benelux: "Zeeland has a sound business climate especially when it comes to agri-food companies, because it is an agricultural province and the sector has a high profile with regard to inhabitants and politicians alike.
The lines of communication with authorities are short and Invest in Zeeland provides information and helps companies to set up contacts. In Zeeland we have hardworking, serious employees. Plus, land is relatively cheap. Zeeland is easily accessible by road and water and close to major cities such as Rotterdam, Antwerp (with the TGV in Antwerp you can be in the heart of Paris within 2 hours) and Brussels (airport). The living environment is also very good. With water (sea and the Eastern Scheldt), forests (dune areas and Brabantse Wal / Kalmthoutse heide) and quiet polders."
