Summerland Varieties Corp.

Intellectual Property Management for
World-Class Tree Fruits​

More than a Quarter Century of Experience

Established during the earliest days of Plant Breeders’ Rights in Canada, SVC has accumulated decades of global experience in plant protection, trademarking, licensing and enforcement.

As international plant intellectual property laws have evolved and adapted, so have we.

An Exceptional Portfolio of Unique Varieties

SVC is honoured to represent the breeders and rights owners of world-renowned apples, cherries and berries. These fruit varieties are often distinguished by desirable attributes such as appearance, taste, texture, size, harvest timing and shelf-life.

The proprietary genetics that comprise many of our newest releases were developed over a century of plant breeding, resulting in truly unique fruit varieties that are exceedingly difficult for others to emulate.
