AgroFresh Solutions, Inc, a global leader in produce freshness solutions, has signed an exclusive global agreement with BotanoCap to distribute its proprietary natural solution to improve storage stability and extend the post-harvest lifespan of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

"This global distribution agreement with BotanoCap will allow AgroFresh to target a broader range of crops and expand the AgroFresh solutions portfolio with new technologies that bring tremendous value to growers, distributors, retailers and consumers," said Dr. Nance Dicciani, Chair of the Board of AgroFresh. "This agreement aligns with our strategic growth agenda to expand our offerings, enter new markets, and address additional crop categories through technology partnerships."

BotanoCap has successfully developed a powerful, proprietary technology platform for the slow release of volatile, essential oils. These new innovative products provide customers with a natural solution to improve storage stability and extend the post-harvest lifespan, effectively suppressing the spread of fungal pathogens and the resulting damages.

Dr. Dicciani added, "Our partnership with BotanoCap will enable AgroFresh to expand into new crops, including table grapes, and soft fruits, such as strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, that represent a significant addressable market.  An independent third party estimated the market value of table grapes alone to be approximately $170 million.  It will also allow us to develop new applications and products based on BotanoCap's novel micro-encapsulation technology and expand our product offerings within the flourishing organic food market. The advantages this technology brings to the entire value chain will enable our customers to achieve optimal quality management from naturally derived products."

The BotanoCap products will be marketed globally by AgroFresh. Sales are expected to begin in as soon as one to two years. Additional planned registrations will be sought to allow broad commercialization, with an initial focus on key markets in theUSA, Latin America, and Europe. The Company will also explore opportunities in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
