De Sangosse has acquired Fertiplus France and its international subsidiaries, Fertiplus Agrosciences, Bioveg and Synagro.
This deal strengthens the De Sangosse position in the strategic business area of plant nutrition at the global level.
Founded in 1984, Fertiplus is a specialist in plant nutrition solutions, and more particularly biostimulants. The partnerships forged with several competitiveness hubs, including QualiMediterranée, Agri Sud-Ouest Innovation and Cirad, give farmers access to effective, profitable solutions that play a full role in environmental protection.
According to Jérôme Peltier, Fertiplus director, signing the strategic agreement is excellent news for the development of projects commenced several years ago. “It is indeed a decisive step, and one that makes us proud, for the future of our companies, as well as for our partners,” he said. “This agreement, bolstered by so many synergies with the De Sangosse group, a reference European player in biosolutions, will be of benefit to all our historical and future partners by boosting considerably our international presence, at their side, as well as through a new offer in terms of depth of range and services.”
Biostimulants, already widely developed in the group by Agronutrition, Servalesa and Nutrient Technologies, represent huge development potential by offering farmers efficient technical solutions in line with environmental expectations. Under a combinatorial approach, incorporating agronomy, soil life (biofertilization), biocontrol and decision-making tools, they contribute to the development of new agroecological models.
“In a rapidly changing market, the R&D, industrial, marketing and commercial synergies between Fertiplus, Agronutrition and the group's international subsidiaries will allow us to strengthen our presence in the major agricultural regions, especially Asia, Africa and South America,” said Nicolas Fillon, CEO, De Sangosse Group. “This agreement confirms our commitment to bring plant nutrition and biostimulation solutions to the market to serve a productive and competitive agriculture.”
Fertiplus France, with its production site based in the region of Barcelona in Spain will rely on the resources of the De Sangosse group to continue to develop new products.
