A new wholesaler is working with established distribution and retail channels to connect fruit and vegetable growers with crop protection manufacturers.

Cohort Wholesale will be headed up by Scott Hodgins, a twenty-year veteran of the crop protection business.

“We are working with manufacturer partners to connect them with farmers where their products can improve fruit and vegetable quality. Farmers will already recognize many of the products we represent, and our partners have a number of new products in development as well,” Hodgins shared.

Cohort Wholesale represents products like MilStop fungicide from BioWorks, OxiDate fungicide/bactericide from BioSafe Systems and Regalia Maxx and Stargus fungicides from Marrone Bio Innovations. Cohort Wholesale and its suppliers will be announcing additional wholesale agreements in the near future.

“Protecting outdoor fruits and vegetables from pests is an increasingly complex challenge as many key chemistries are exiting the market while new pests continue to emerge,” the media release said. “At the same time, many crop protection manufacturers are developing new, innovative solutions to help Canadian growers address these concerns.”

All the products represented are from United States-based companies. BioWorks is headquartered in New York, BioSafe Systems is headquartered in Connecticut, and Marrone Bio Innovations is headquartered in California.

Cohort Wholesale aspires to be a trusted Canadian wholesaler of their outdoor fruit and vegetable crop protection products, working with the established distribution and retail channel to service all key markets. By expanding the reach in Canada, Cohort Wholesale states it will be creating demand for and maximizing the in-field performance of their suppliers’ products to help farmers grow the best crops possible.
