GAB Consulting, a European regulatory consulting company offering comprehensive registration services for the biopesticide and agrochemical industry, and Promo-Vert, historical French Field Testing company, operating in Southern Europe, announce their cooperation to create ACCERES (www.acceres.com).
||Why « ACCERES »? The brand ACCERES is a combination of the word “Access” – providing solutions to customers for market access - and “Ceres” – the Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility. ACCERES refers to market access through expertise in a timely manner, time to market being essential to customers. ACCERES means pragmatism, serenity, quality, science, acceleration and success, which positions ACCERES at the highest standard of operational excellence and customer centricity.
ACCERES aims at becoming a leading Agricultural Contract Research Group focused on expertise and coordination throughout 3 key services: Regulatory Services, Field Trials and Laboratories Studies.
Supported by Ekkio Capital, an investment firm based in Paris, which has already created a similar group in human health, ACCERES is customer-focused and built today around two companies recognized for their expertise:
• GAB Consulting, the largest European Regulatory Affairs specialized in Agchem in Europe, created in Germany 20 years ago, has registered and renewed more than 100 active substances and 1000 end use products thanks to its 70 experts known for their quality work in Agrochemicals and a renowned expertise in Biopesticides
• Promo-Vert, one of the most experienced field testing firm in Europe, created in France in 1985, performing more than 1000 trials yearly through its network of 50 experts across 10 sites in France, Spain, Italy and Portugal
Yvonnick Jambon*, who joined the Group as CEO to ensure the development and structuration of a fully coordinated offer with the help of existing teams, explains “ACCERES is able to respond to the increasing outsourcing trend of regulatory services, field and laboratory studies on the European market thanks to its full range of services.”
Beyond organic growth, ACCERES is already planning new acquisitions to be able to offer its international clients the best coordination of high-quality services, putting together the best experts in their field.
