“This distribution agreement will bring out the best in each company, the Horizon brand of corn is filled with top genetics, Delmar is a company excelling in service and support. Together the opportunity is huge, and we are certain the customer will benefit” said President Rick Van Laecke.
“Along with everyone at the Ceres Global Seed team, I am very excited to move forward with Horizon Seeds Canada Inc. to be our new corn seed provider”, said Mark Jorgensen, Managing Director of Ceres Global Seeds. “We share many common values with an emphasis on delivering superior customer service and high-performing seed. Working directly with Horizon, who is focused on developing new and better corn-seed products, brings a strong advantage to our dealers and will greatly benefit their grower customers.”
We look forward to this new partnership and would like to thank our dealer network for their continued support of the Horizon Seeds corn brand.
Delmar’s entry into the seed business began by retailing Legend Seeds, Inc. brand soybean seed in 2005. In 2010, Delmar became the exclusive distributor for Legend soybean and corn seed in western Canada under the trade name “Legend Seeds Canada.”
In March 2019, Delmar was acquired by Ceres Global Ag Corp., an Ontario corporation with headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Through its network of commodity logistics centers and team of industry experts, Ceres merchandizes high-quality North American agricultural commodities and value-added products and provides reliable supply chain logistics services to agricultural, energy and industrial customers worldwide.
Moving forward, Delmar’s seed business will be re-branded as “Ceres Global Seeds.”
