New ownership from October

The Danish seed company DLF has acquired Syngenta’s sugar beet seed business including Maribo Seed and the well-known sugar beet brand Hilleshög. The new name for the stand-alone and focused business unit is MariboHilleshög

The Maribo brand will continue to be marketed separately to more than 30 markets.

With this acquisition, DLF wishes to send a clear signal to the sugar industry, the growers and related organisations that DLF considers sugar beet production as a strategic focus area, and that they are committed to the continuous development of new, improved sugar beet varieties to optimize the sugar production.
