Exclusive distribution agreement advances commercialization of Megafol® and MC Extra® in the central and northern provinces of China

Valagro S.p.A, a global leader in the production and commercialization of biostimulants and specialty nutrients, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with FMC Corporation’s China subsidiary, thus expanding its presence in China. According to the agreement, FMC will exclusively distribute Megafol and MC Extra in central and northern provinces of China. Valagro will continue to maintain its long-term relationship with Just Agrotech in the southern parts of China, where they have pioneered the development of biostimulant products over the past 10 years.

 Mr. Giuseppe Natale, CEO of Valagro, commented: "This agreement, significantly enhances our presence in China. The Chinese market is strategic for Valagro’s growth: it represents the world’s fast expanding agricultural market and it’s developing modern agricultural practices, with increased attention to sustainability. At the same time, our growth in China is part of our broader strategy for expansion in the Far East agricultural business, where the contribution of this area, to the current Valagro total turnover, is relatively low.”

Mr Gordon Xu, General Manager of FMC Agricultural Solutions for Greater China, said: “FMC’s mission in China is to provide innovative solutions and technologies to growers to meet their evolving needs in agricultural production.  Valagro is a leading company in the area of biostimulants and specialty nutrients technologies. This partnership combines the strengths and resources of both companies and greatly broadens FMC’s portfolio of technologies on the plant nutrition side and enhances FMC’s ability to service the growing needs of our customers and growers in the rapidly developing agricultural market in China.”
