Columbia Seed Co. Ltd. (CSL) was established in 1964. The main purpose then was the production of quality seed peas for the United Kingdom, Asia, and Europe. With changes in world trade over the past fifty years our company has had to change as well.
Our company established the green pea export standard for Canadian Green Peas many years ago with our variety 'Radley'. Bred by Columbia Seed Co. Ltd. owners at the time, Sharpes International Seeds in Sleaford, UK.
Since 1996 CSL was owned by Jörg & Petra Klempnauer of Vauxhall, Alberta, Canada.
