A history of value
The story of Valagro began in the 1980s with a distinctive value: the incessant search for innovation, respecting nature and ethics. These are the qualities that enabled the company to establish itself successfully in the Italian market during the eighties, following a successful path to consolidate its presence in a growing number of countries around the world. During the 1990s, professionalism, customer-orientation and innovation allowed Valagro to launch itself on the European market and affirm its presence in the Far East and South America and then in the United States.
The new millennium opens with an industrial diversification process made possible by significant acquisitions initially involving the bio-nutrients of the American Nutrecology, specialising in fertilisers and extracts from the Norwegian Algea and Nordtang seaweed. Subsequently, Valagro acquires the English company Maxicrop, along with its subsidiaries in Australia and New Zealand, and the French company Samabiol.
In 2015, with the acquisition of the Indian biopesticide company Sri Biotech Laboratories India Limited (today Valagro BioSciences), Valagro enters the new market segment of biopesticides and new technologies, such as fermentation, enhancing its presence in the Asian subcontinent and affirming its status as global company in the field of biologicals.
These are the stages that accompany the consolidation of a distribution network that spreads across more than 80 countries, where Valagro is now present with a high-level offer certified by the highest international authorities.
