UPL to partner with Cohort Wholesale

UPL AgroSolutions Canada, a global provider of sustainable agriculture products and solutions, has reached an agreement to have Cohort Wholesale act as a distributor of UPL’s growing portfolio of outdoor horticultural crop protection products. 

 

Effective September 1, 2021, Cohort Wholesale will provide technical, sales, warehousing, and logistical support for UPL products, such as Casoron, Devrinol, Microthiol and Orthene, as well as other key brands across the country. 

 

“UPL’s agreement with Cohort Wholesale is a true partnership. This arrangement will, on a national scale, allow us to not only continue to grow our Canadian horticultural business but also ensure that customers receive the support they need to successfully integrate UPL products into their pest management plans,” commented Trent McCrea, UPL Canadian country head. 

 

Scott Hodgins, manager of Cohort Wholesale, added, “We are humbled by the opportunity to help UPL continue to expand its footprint in horticulture crop protection. We can’t wait to start conversations with customers to help them plan for the 2022 season and beyond.”

 

As a result of evaluating its horticultural distribution strategy, UPL will also begin distributing Penncozeb directly to channel customers alongside its Manzate product line.
