SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc aims to be the leading global contract multiplier of quality vegetable seed and the premier marketer of proprietary varieties the North American market and around the globe.
South Pacific Seeds first began in Australia in 1986 and was founded in Methven, NZ in 1992, in July 2016 SPS Dorsing Seeds was acquired as part of the global group.
There are two divisions of the company, sales and production. The production division is concerned with the growing of high quality vegetable seed for the world market. It achieves this by contracting growers to produce a specific crop for a given customer under strict quality guidelines. South Pacific Seed staffs are required to ensure that every aspect of the product process of these specialized crops is done to the highest standard.
South Pacific Seeds first began in Australia in 1986, when 12 people left an existing vegetable seed company.
People from both facets of the business came to join SPS that is Production and Sales. Sales are a very large part and strong financial contributor to the business for the purposes of this policy document we will be looking at both sides of the business.
After a number of years of operation in Australia it was realised that a wider range of climatic conditions were needed to produce the vegetable seeds for the increasing customer base. Also within the existing customer base there were a number of crops which required different climatic conditions than Australia could offer. The company then branched out to New Zealand, USA, and Chile. The company continues to operate four production areas in Australia.
From here South Pacific Seeds (New Zealand) Ltd was formed. Although SPS (NZ) Ltd maintains very strong links with the parent company in Australia it is a company in its own right with its own board of directors and investors.
SPS is a vegetable seed production company, it does not have any plant breeding or genetic material of it’s own but acts as a multiplier of vegetable seed for various breeding and sales companies around the world. It focuses only on vegetable seed and does not trade in grains or pasture species.
The operation of SPS can best be described by the yearly production cycle that follows.
The process starts with an inquiry form an overseas sales company, usually in Asia or Europe. They will order a given quantity of a particular vegetable seed at a given price. In this way SPS does not speculate on any crop as every crop grown is already contracted before it is planted.
The sales company will then send their parent seed to Australia, New Zealand, Chile, or the US. While the parent seed is being shipped a field manager working in a given part of the country will be searching for a suitable location and grower for the crop. Once this has been done SPS and the grower will sign a contract stating the type, quantity, quality and price for the seed.
The Field Manager will then work with the grower for the entire production period, offering advice on such things as planting time, fertilizer, weed pest and disease control, special procedures, and harvest time. During the production phase there may be specialized operations which need to be performed. South Pacific Seeds has its own staff and equipment to perform such tasks, some of which are charged on to the grower.
In July 2016 SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc became part of the SPS company profile, and is owned jointly by South Pacific Seeds Pty Ltd of Australia and South Pacific Seeds (NZ) Ltd, SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc maintains very strong links with the parent company in Australia & New Zealand but, it is a company in its own right with its own board of directors and investors.
SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc will maintain the customer’s relationships and growers from the previous company, and will add the production element that South Pacific Seeds is know for around the world, in the fall of 2016 SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc began the first Hybrid Carrot seed contract multiplication and will add a number of Hybrid contract multiplications in the Spring of 2017. SPS Dorsing Seeds Inc will also operate a separate sales division like our parent company operations.
