Minafin, which over the last 15 years has developed green chemicals with applications in many user markets, created Minagro to leverage the group’s skills and experience in this field. Minagro will direct this expertise to help agrochemical and crop care companies meet the all-important challenges of improving the global impact of farming on the environment and enhancing food quality. A key objective of Minagro is advising agribusiness firms in finding those greener solutions most suited to their operations. It will be the first business entity in Europe to offer, under one roof, a full-range of bio-based ingredients for the agricultural industry.

“We see Minagro as a significant opportunity to leverage the Minafin Group’s R&D and production capabilities in sustainable chemistry and to pursue our development of bio-based ingredients for the agriculture industry,” said Frédéric Gauchet, president of the Minafin Group. “We are conscientious about improving crop production efficiency, agricultural sustainability and plant resilience. Minagro will support the agri-players in overcoming these challenges.”

Under the leadership of Emmanuel Peulens, managing director of Minafin’s Green Chemical Users businesses, new appointees Bassam Tannir, global business unit manager, Karen Van der Sande, senior project manager and Arnold de Maere, sales and marketing manager, will spearhead Minagro’s developments and market growth. Together, this core team brings a combined 50 years’ agrochemical experience, a strong market network and a range of technical expertise.
