Morgan Hill, Calif.-based Sakata Seed America Inc. has joined the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.

The Association’s initiative is to up awareness about heart disease, while raising funds for research.

Sakata attended the northern central coast’s annual Go Red For Women Luncheon in May, according to a news release.

The luncheon had more than 200 in attendance and more than $60,000 was raised.

“As we celebrate Sakata’s 100th anniversary, it is no coincidence that we are supporting AHA Go Red For Women,” Alecia Troy, senior marketing manager, said in the release. “This is just the kind of initiative Sakata is proud to be a part of as we celebrate our long history of service in the community, commitment to staff, and development of sustainable, reliable, and heart-healthy products.”
