Legend Seeds, a food-grade soybean supplier, processor and exporter, have partnered with Sevita International to expand their respective seed offerings in the United States and eastern Canada.
The agreement calls for Sevita International to distribute and market Legend Seeds branded corn hybrids with a full array of trait technologies through its PROSeeds business in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
Legend Seeds will bring Sevita International conventional- and food-grade soybean varieties to its trade area in the United States where they will be branded Legend Seeds.
In addition, Legend Seeds Canada will distribute PROSeeds’ Genuity soybeans in western Canada.
“We are pleased to be working with Sevita International,” Glen Davis, president of Legend Seeds, said. “They are a world-leading exporter of food-grade soybeans, and they have excellent marketing and distribution in Canada.”
The partnership is a match made in heaven, according to Bob Hart, president of Sevita International.
“Like us, Legend Seeds is a strong, independent regional seed company,” Hart said. “Legend Seeds was the best fit culturally and product-wise. They have many excellent corn hybrids that are well-suited for the eastern Canadian corn market, and our soybeans are suited for the upper Midwest states they serve. Additionally, Legend Seeds has strong connections to genetic and trait developers, which ensures they will bring competitive and superior hybrids to the marketplace.”
