CBC acquires Intrachem

The Japanese CBC group has acquired Italian biopesticide company Intrachem Bio Italia (Grassobbio). The group’s European subsidiary, CBC Europe, entered the crop protection sector in the 1990s, distributing and developing pheromone-based mating disruption systems for lepidopteran pests, manufactured by Japanese company ShinEtsu Chemical. The acquisition will make a wider range of biological products available to growers in Europe, the companies say. They will further promote Intrachem’s Biogard line of crop protection products, which conform to EU Regulation 2092/91 use in organic agriculture.
