to business visibility

In a constantly changing context – climate, pests, diseases, regulations, market trends, etc. – you need to secure your business development.

You need both reliability in terms of seed quality and seed availability, as well as visibility.

Sakata helps you plan your commercial development and build your forecast customer by customer, variety by variety, down to each item (volume and pack size). 

In this way you guarantee business continuity: your orders are delivered on time when your customers need their seeds.

Regulatory compliance

Regulations constantly evolve impacting seed movement and commercialisation.

Quality requirements, labelling, and phytosanitary standards are diverse and complex and require considerable expertise and responsiveness.

Sakata continuously monitors regulations in your country and issues the necessary documents so that you comply with local requirements.

Registering and protecting intellectual property help to ensure the integrity of vegetable varieties.

When you purchase seeds that are properly registered and protected, you can have trust in their authenticity and quality.

This also prevents unauthorized use or distribution of proprietary seeds, which could harm your business.

Sakata safeguards seed distributors by ensuring the integrity of its seed varieties, preventing any infringement or unauthorized marketing of protected seeds.
