We mourn the death of John Sorenson, the CEO of Vestaron, who passed away unexpectedly last weekend. This gentle, dignified man was a good friend of Larta’s, specifically in his support and embrace of the Ag Innovation Showcase.  Over many years, starting in 2010, he served as a presenter, panelist and keynote speaker at the Showcase, and impressed everyone with his quiet but determined passion and interest. The company he founded, Vestaron, has transformed from a start-up R&D company to a commercially-viable business in the development of bio-insecticides derived from peptides occurring in nature.

We offer our condolences to his family, his employees, his board and shareholders.  We will miss him.
