Certis/Futureco launch Iberian deal
Mitsui & Co's agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, and the Spanish biopesticide company, Futureco Bioscience (Barcelona), have formed a strategic alliance in Spain and Portugal. Certis is to commercially develop Futureco’s products through its distribution channels. The deal covers: bioinsecticides; botanical extracts and plant defence activators, such as Botanigard, BestCure and Rootgard; and “special activators”, including Bioradicante, Citigrower, Ecormon and Frutaliv. Futureco products in development or moving through the registration process will also form part of the deal. Certis country manager for Spain Pedro Juan Serna expects growth from the agreement. “This alliance enables us to expand the valuable portfolio of Certis Europe in IPM technologies,” he says.
