Canadian company opens sea plants processing facility in India

Acadian Seaplants Limited, the parent company of Acadian Plant Health™ (APH), is proud to announce a major milestone in the company’s geographical expansion. Early in the year, Acadian Seaplants Limited established a wholly owned subsidiary company in India, Acadian Seaplants India Private Limited, and opened a processing facility in collaboration with a local partner Standard Pesticides, at Vadodara, Gujarat, in the western part of India.

This event had been preceded by APH forming new business partnerships and the launch of their biostimulant products and Acadian BioSwitch™ technology in India last year, during the National Round Table of CEOs on Eco Agriculture and Bio Products.


Perry Bevin, CFO of Acadian Seaplants Limited, cuts a ribbon during the factory’s opening ceremony, accompanied by APH’s Business Director Soumendu Ghosh and Ramesh Shah, Managing Director of Standard Pesticides. 

Vadodara is known for Kirti Mandir - the mausoleum of the princely Gaekwad dynasty, which ruled the Maratha Confederacy from its formation in 1721 until 1949, when it acceded to the newly formed Union of India.

The Acadian Seaplants Pvt. Ltd. facility will repackage Acadian Plant Health’s brands such as Stimplex®, Toggle® Plus and PromOcean™ for the Indian market as well as manufacture several of Acadian Plant Health’s newest products within its soil health solutions – the SoliGro™ line of products. According to the company, the products made at this facility will have a positive effect on increasing Indian farms’ productivity in a sustainable way and will support the Indian government’s initiative of doubling farmers’ income by 2022 and improving soil health. In celebration, India Post issued a commemorative postal stamp that features Perry Bevin, Acadian Seaplants’ Chief Financial Officer, who had the honour of cutting the ribbon during the factory’s opening ceremony.
