Seminis is now using the Monsanto
facilities located in Chatham,
Ontario, to distribute seed to
Canadian greenhouse growers.
“With this new distribution centre in
Chatham, we can now ship seed to our
Canadian customers overnight, or make
it available for pickup at the centre on
the same day the order is placed,” said
Seminis protected culture sales manager
Joep van de Burgt.

Utilizing sales forecasts and history,
Seminis will transfer seed from its processing
plants in the Netherlands and
United States in advance of anticipated
sales. Along with the necessary customs
paperwork and certificates, the seed
will be available to growers at a
moment’s notice. The seed will come
packaged in foil to the Chatham facility,
where it will be stored in a refrigerated
system.
Seminis is the vegetable seed division
of Monsanto. It operates in 150
countries and territories.
