Valagro: passion for nature since 1980
Today, Valagro is a leading company in the production and marketing of bio-stimulants and fertilisers, with 13 subsidiaries located throughout the world.
In addition to its production site in Atessa, Italy, the company has two other active production facilities in Norway and three other in India.
A history of value
Valagro's story began 30 years ago 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 nineties, competence, customer orientation and innovation allow Valagro to enter the European market and subsequently to assert its presence in the Orient and in North and South America.
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, 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.
The Valagro world today.
Growth and diversification have imposed a profound rethinking of the organisational structure of Valagro, strong investment in research, particularly in genomics and phenomics, and a division into three main business areas:
- Farm for agriculture;
- Garden & Turf for gardening and lawns,
- Industrials for the local and international industry.
In addition, Valagro has embarked on a new phase of diversification, producing special ingredients for animal feed, human food and cosmetics.
