Mon. April 24th, 2017 - by Melissa De Leon Chavez

MORGAN HILL, CA - Sakata Seed America is marking its 40th birthday in North America, and the company has quite a few things lined up to celebrate, not the least of which are a new logo and slogan.

Alecia Troy, Senior Marketing Manager, Sakata Seed America“To pay tribute to this anniversary year, we’ve developed a new logo and slogan to illustrate our company’s history and vision for the future–but, that’s not the only way we’re recognizing this milestone,” said Alecia Troy, Senior Marketing Manager. “Throughout the year we’ll be celebrating our anniversary by giving back to the employees, customers, industry, and community that got us to this point. This accomplishment is only made possible by many positive elements and we want to recognize and share that story all year long!”

On the note of positive elements, Sakata has laid out a plan to spread the love through an act of kindness for each candle on the proverbial cake.

"A big part of why we do what we do is that we see the downstream benefits of bringing beautiful flowers and healthy vegetables to the consumer. It’s nice to come to work knowing you’re making a positive impact on people’s lives, and we want to celebrate our 40th by increasing our level of commitment to this mindset,” Troy added.
