Victoria Seeds Limited is a full line seed company that became operational in 2004 for the purpose of delivering quality seed to "small holder" farmers who produce over 90% of agricultural output in Uganda. Our company has grown into a dependable seed house exporting to the regional market and is engaged in seed research, production, processing and marketing. Although our core business is to provide quality vegetable and cereal seed with related inputs our company offers a range of seed varieties for legume crops, oil crops and forage for livestock farmers. Our efforts to reverse the decline in agricultural productivity in Uganda and other countries of the region have been widely acknowledged.
