Nuseed is celebrating the first anniversary of the Nuseed Innovation Center in West Sacramento, California, which provides world-class R&D facilities and a hub for Nuseed’s global business.
In January 2020, Nuseed completed construction of the 48,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility to support analytical and molecular breeding R&D activities, as well as global management. Many of Nuseed’s global commercial operations, marketing, supply chain and finance teams are based from the facility.
Nuseed R&D takes place across the globe, however, operations based out of the new West Sacramento Nuseed Innovation Center play a significant role supporting Nuseed’s key global markets, including:
- Sorghum seed sold by Nuseed in Europe, Africa, and Asia
- A large proportion of Nuseed’s sunflower seed sold in Europe
- All sunflower seed sold in both the US and Canada
- Expansion of Nuseed Omega-3 Canola grain production with operations managed by Nuseed’s North American supply chain leadership
Nuseed’s Global R&D Lead, Leon Streit says, “The addition of this industry leading R&D, supply chain and global management location in the US, in combination with our Horsham Innovation Center in Australia and our rich bank of global germplasm, gives Nuseed a competitive global advantage across both hemispheres.”
Leon, who managed the Innovation Center’s development, leads a team of scientists, breeders and technical support staff based out of the facility.
