We prove that the Seidel morphism of the product of two symplectic manifolds is naturally related to the Seidel morphisms of both components, when these manifolds are monotone. We deduce a condition for loops of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of the product to be homotopically non trivial. This result was inspired by and extends results obtained by Pedroza.
