Rancho Tissue Technologies Names Managing Director

Susana Vanzie-Canton has been named managing director of Rancho Tissue Technologies (RTT), allowing owner and founder Heather May to take on a more high-level role and increase her focus on the lab’s development and innovation activities.

“Since starting the lab, we have turned Rancho Tissue Technologies into a state-of-the-art, environmentally controlled laboratory that is equipped to produce and sell 4 million plants per year internationally,” May says. “Placing Susana in her new role enables me to focus on the company’s continued growth and evolution.”

Vanzie-Canton, who joined RTT in 2007 as a researcher, will oversee day-to-day activities at the company and oversee the growth of RTT’s line of tissue-cultured products. Those products include succulent plants, cut flowers, perennials, tropicals and ornamental grasses, among others.

Since the last update, there have been several changes to the list of petunias confirmed or suspected of being genetically engineered and therefore unauthorized to be imported or sold.

In response, AmericanHort has negotiated a more flexible approach with APHIS, and new guidance has just been posted for importing Petunia plants, cuttings, or seed. The new guidance allows […]
