Bio-solutions specialist Olmix has joined the Union des industries de la fertilisation (UNIFA), the French association representing producers of mineral and organic fertilizer, and soil improvers. The company has joined the association’s biostimulant section.

“The plant nutrition industry is undergoing major changes to face important issues at stake: climate, energy and food sovereignty. Olmix has been committed from the outset to supporting farmers and distributors with concrete, bio-based solutions, and our sector is fully mobilised to act and respond to these major challenges,” said Catherine Lamboley, Director of the Olmix Group’s Plant Care Business Unit.

“We are convinced that solutions will come through cooperation and the strength of the collective. This is what motivated us to join UNIFA, which, with its members, is tackling the challenges of decarbonation, circularity and innovation head on,” said Lamboley.

Within UNIFA’s membership, there are “36 producers of mineral, organo-mineral, organic fertilisers and soil improvers who operate 77 production sites, employ over 4,000 people directly and generate 8,000 indirect jobs for a turnover of €2.2 billion in France in 2021.”

Florence Nys, General Delegate of UNIFA, also sees the value of this new collaboration: “We are delighted to welcome such a dynamic company into our federation. It is important to show the diversity of the fertilisation world, and to underline the importance of biostimulation in our sector. I think that Olmix has a lot to offer us in this respect.”
