- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
MORGAN HILL, CA – This year marks a special one for Sakata Seed America. The company will be celebrating 40 years in North America throughout the year, with a host of special announcements to herald the milestone. Sakata has unveiled a new logo and slogan, with new products to follow in commemoration of this achievement.
“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,” stated 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!”
The company will kick off its first celebration of the year at California Spring Trials. According to a press release, visitors will be endowed with the 40th anniversary theme as soon as they arrive. Attendees will also be treated to a lineup of new introductions to the company, including its AAS Winner and Fleuroselect Gold Medal awarded Profusion Red zinnia.
“Profusion Red is a homerun! And the best thing is that seed is available now, so growers and retailers don’t have to wait another year to offer Profusion Red. To order seed, growers should contact their preferred supplier now,” said Carla Bawdon, Sakata Ornamentals Customer Service Manager.
As we continue to move through 2017, Sakata also plans to highlight its new dwarf snapdragon series, Candy Tops, and two stunning new SuperCal® petunia colors, Buttercream and Red Crimson.
“We are excited to display our new introductions and New Variety Brochure at Spring Trials this year. We feel this year’s line-up tells a great story about Sakata and the work and progress that has gone into our past forty years. This collection represents an important milestone in our company’s history, and we can’t wait for the industry to see it,” continued Troy.
