CVS Inc. started in the summer of 1985 as a contract company for customers overseas. The four Avila brothers officially incorporated the business in April of 1987. CVS Inc. became a complete seed business with production, R&D and sales divisions. After 30 plus years we have grown to be an influential lettuce seed company with multiple representative branches. Currently CVS Inc. is the leader in Romaine lettuce with several patented varieties. Wherever lettuce is grown we are represented through a dealership network andalso through our direct sales division. We are continuing to always be at the forefront of lettuce. This year marks the 30th anniversary of CVS Inc. which is still privately owned and operated by the original family.
