Corporate History
Zambia Seed Company Limited (ZAMSEED) was incorporated in 1974, but only commenced active business in January 1981. In the early 1980s ZAMSEED was the only seed company in Zambia and therefore enjoyed a monopoly. After liberalization of the economy in 1991-1992, there was market penetration by new seed companies notably from outside the country which created healthy competition, enhancing levels of customer service and quality of seed.

ZAMSEED produces various types of certified seeds for both the local and export markets. The product range includes maize, soyabeans, millets, groundnuts, sorghum, cowpeas, sunflower, wheat, beans and vegetable seeds. Due to market demand, ZAMSEED has also diversified into supply of vegetative propagated planting materials like sweet potato vines and cassava cuttings.
