UPL launches new ‘NPP’ business unit

02.07.2021

UPL Ltd. has launched ‘NPP’ – Natural Plant Protection – a new global business unit housing UPL’s portfolio of natural and biologically derived agricultural inputs and technologies.

NPP will act as a stand-alone brand, consolidating UPL’s existing biosolutions portfolio, network of R&D laboratories and facilities worldwide, which currently accounts for seven percent of UPL’s total revenues.

NPP’s global offering will continue to benefit from UPL’s global distribution footprint, drawing on innovation, research and development capabilities, and will be supported by UPL’s ability to bring products to market on a global scale.
 
According to UPL, NPP’s portfolio will play a vital role addressing farmers’ pain points – including abiotic stress, soil health, residues and resistance management – in developed and developing agricultural markets alike.
 
“For over two decades, UPL has been investing in the development and scaling of biosolutions,” said Jai Shroff, global CEO, UPL Ltd. “The strength of our current portfolio is testament not only to our progressive approach to sustainable agriculture, but also to the dedication of our teams across the world to meeting the innovation and technology needs of farmers, consumers and the environment. Our OpenAg purpose places collaboration at the heart of progress, and NPP will work across UPL’s global footprint to shape and scale the biological technologies of the future.”
 
According to Fabio Torretta, chief operating officer, NPP, UPL, NPP has the right capabilities, the right mindset, and the right technical skills and resources to drive a new era of positive, progressive change in agriculture. “The biosolutions market is set for double-digit growth to US$10bn by 2025, compared to traditional agrochemicals, which are projected to experience single digit growth. NPP is well positioned to shape a more sustainable food future.”
 
With NPP, UPL will be able to cross-pollinate innovation across regions, understanding and learning from the needs of one market to increase the speed and depth of penetration into another market. The company maintains NPP will also be agile in adding products and platforms to its portfolio, creating global partnerships and training programs, contributing to environmental sustainability, farmer resilience and improving food value chains worldwide.
