Situated in the heart of the Anjou region, HEMPit is an agricultural cooperative specialised in producing and marketing industrial hemp seeds. We breed, produce and market our partner producers’ seeds in an aim to develop a sustainable, competitive and responsible agriculture in line with our values: commitment, enthusiasm, durability, boldness and quality.
Led by a network of 155 propagator farmers and 30 employees, and equipped with 8000m2 of production facilities and more than 500 plots of growing area, we offer our customers in France and abroad a wide selection of certified industrial hemp seed varieties.
We provide support to our partner producers by supplying them with high-quality seeds, adapted to today’s challenges and emerging markets.

Since our inception in 1964, we have developed our business in the heart of Maine et Loire, a region historically recognised as a production basin for hemp seeds thanks to its climate and proximity to the Loire Valley. Polyculture, livestock farming, horticulture, and seed production have built the region’s solid reputation, guaranteeing highly competitive productions.
Our awareness of the societal and environmental challenges of tomorrow drives us to lead the way by contributing to the promotion of bio-based hemp construction. That’s why we’ve decided to invest in a modern, inviting workspace where working together is a pleasure. We’ve designed a convivial space where we can consolidate our collective intelligence, pool our resources, and envision a hemp-filled future.
This new building, with a total surface area of 7,500 m2, includes cutting-edge industrial production facilities, a head office built using bio-based hemp materials and a genetic research laboratory dedicated to developing expertise in biotechnologies and plant breeding innovation. Building began in June 2019 and is scheduled to finish in 2021.
