The increased attention to food safety and sustainability imposes more and more restrictions on agricultural practices, while there is an increased demand for healthier and safer foods. Therefore, improving production efficiency in a sustainable way, without causing irreparable damage to our environment or depleting valuable resources, is essential.
AgroSavfe has the ambition to contribute to a sustainable production of safe and healthy food. The Company is focusing on the discovery, development and commercialisation of effective and safe biocontrols to tackle pests and diseases using its ground-breaking, scalable, proprietary AGROBODY™ technology platform.
AgroSavfe’s products are a novel class of biocontrols based on AGROBODY™ bioactives that effectively and selectively target pests’ and pathogens’ essential molecules. AGROBODY™ bioactives combine high performance characteristics of chemical pesticides with the clean safety profile of biologicals. Based on its unique, AGROBODY™ Platform, AgroSavfe has built a versatile product pipeline against key pests and diseases, with the first product expected to enter the US market in 2022.
The Company was founded in 2013 as a spin-off from the VIB (Flemish Institute for Biotechnology) and is based in Gent, Belgium.
