A proud Southern Alberta company, K3 Seeds agrees to five-year naming partnership in Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre
Lethbridge, Alta. – A proudly local seed company is growing its community involvement, as K3 Seeds has agreed to a five-year naming commitment for a meeting suite within the new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre. Based out of Picture Butte, K3 Seeds has always valued the people who make the region’s agriculture industry thrive, and that commitment extends to its support of the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre, which is focused on shining a spotlight on the region’s unique agriculture community and growing investment in Southern Alberta.
The K3 Seeds Meeting Suite is one of four 1,000 square foot suites within the MNP Meeting Centre, and is designed to be a flexible space ideal for small meetings, breakout space, training sessions and more.

We appreciate their involvement in the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre.”
