Cohort Wholesale enters Canadian marketplace

Scott Hodgins, Cohort Wholesale

There’s a new player in the distribution of crop protection products: Cohort Wholesale. Based in Ancaster, Ontario, the company aspires to be a trusted Canadian wholesaler of preferred-position outdoor fruit and vegetable crop protection products.

 

Scott Hodgins, a 20-year veteran of the crop protection business, is heading up the new company.

 

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

 

Cohort Wholesale-represented products currently include MilStop fungicide from BioWorks, OxiDatefungicide / 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. 

 

Hodgins explains that the company will be working with established distribution and retail channels to service all key horticultural markets, creating demand for and maximizing the in-field performance of suppliers’ products to help farmers grow the best crops possible. 

 

“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,” says Hodgins. “At the same time, crop protection manufacturers are developing new, innovative solutions to help Canadian growers address those concerns. Cohort Wholesale is  going to provide technical and sales support for those companies who may not have horticultural expertise at the field level here in Canada.”
