MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, US — Ceres Global Ag Corp.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Delmar Commodities Ltd., partnered with two specialized seed companies, Sevita International Corp. and Horizon Seeds Canada Inc.
Both companies will distribute corn and soybean seed products in Western Canada. In combination with these new relationships, Delmar will be rebranding its Legend Seeds Canada trade name to Ceres Global Seeds and will no longer be distributing Legend Seeds Inc.’s corn or soybean products.
“By acquiring Delmar less than one year ago, and through the inclusion of its seed and processing division, we made significant progress on our goal to diversify into agriculture-related businesses in regions we know and understand well,” said Robert Day, president and chief executive officer of Ceres. “To enhance that diversification, we conducted a rigorous review to identify the best possible seed companies that will allow us to continue delivering superior value to our dealer network and their growers. Our team identified Sevita and Horizon as partners with high-quality products and a strong commitment to service, which is consistent with our corporate vision to be the most trusted and valued partner to quality-conscious customers.”
Horizon Seeds is a Canadian-owned and operated family seed corn business located in Courtland, Ontario, that focuses on the commercialization of corn hybrids across Canada.
Sevita, also a Canadian-owned company, commercializes high-performing genetics across all major trait platforms available in soybeans today, including but not limited to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend, Enlist E3 and, Non-GMO Food Grade.
Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, US, Ceres procures and supplies North American agricultural commodities and value-added products, industrial products, fertilizer, energy products and reliable supply chain logistics services to customers worldwide.
Together with its affiliated companies, Ceres operates 13 locations across Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Minnesota. These facilities have an aggregate grain and oilseed storage capacity of approximately 30.8 million bushels.
