Sakata Seed acquires minority interest in Van Egmond Lisianthus

Sakata Seed Corporation, of Yokohama, Japan, announces that they have acquired a minority interest in Van Egmond Lisianthus, of Rijnsburg, The Netherlands. Sakata Seed Corporation is a major breeder of Lisianthus cultivars, and Van Egmond Lisianthus is one of the world’s largest producers of Lisianthus Young Plants.

The agreement between the two companies, which pertains solely to the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region of Sakata’s territories, also means that Van Egmond Lisianthus will have exclusive rights to new Sakata Lisianthus varieties in the EMEA region for a maximum of two years after introduction of each new variety.

In reaching this agreement, Sakata Seed Corporation and Van Egmond Lisianthus are committing to the future supply and distribution of Lisianthus genetics. The additional formalization of the already strong relationship between Sakata Seed Corporation and Van Egmond Lisianthus is another step in strengthening this cooperation.
