Seeds and Sowing
The very essence of Ceresco soy resides entirely in the genetic purity and variety of seeds used by the company. Not surprising that such great care is given to seeds.
Ceresco has perfected soybean processing intended for human consumption. The company is recognized as one of the leading producers of Pedigree seeds and one of the largest exporters of Natto soybeans in Canada.
Ceresco has developed unique expertise in clear hilum soy harvested through conventional or organic cultivation methods. The company is also specialized in the marketing of Identity Preserved high-protein soy.
Ceresco offers the following products:
» Identity Preserved White (clear) Hilum
- Regular (for tofu and miso)
- Special Quality (high protein and great taste)
Available fertilizer- and herbicide-free, all these products can also be Healthy Grain, ECOCERT QAI Japan, JAS, NOP and EU certified.
Ceresco monitors its seeds at every step of the process. Producers under agreement with Ceresco cultivate only Identity Preserved soy and use only soy seeds certified by Ceresco.
Before sowing, seed drills are cleaned by the producers. Then, Ceresco’s Agricultural Specialists visit the producers to make sure that the cleaning process was carried out properly. During cultivation, Ceresco experts go on site to inspect fields and carefully analyze producers’ lands to ensure healthy plantations.
