The value of experience, the strength of innovation
Biolchim S.p.A. is a leading company in the production and commercialization of biostimulants, whose function is to stimulate natural processes to enhance nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and crop quality in full respect of sustainable agriculture values and practices.
Thanks to the experience acquired in more than 40 years of activity, the strong relationship with the greatest worldwide producers of raw materials, and the collaboration with important Universities and Research Centres, Biolchim offers a complete portfolio of biostimulants that maximize the performance of any crop, anywhere in the world.
Biolchim daily operates in the respect of international standards ISO 9001 (obtained in 2005) and ISO 14001 e ISO 18001 (obtained in 2013 and 2014).
BIOLCHIM IN THE WORLD
Based in Italy, where the production lines and the extraction units are located, Biolchim is active in more than 80 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, South America. In Brazil, Germany, Hungary, Poland, China, New Zealand and Canada the company operates directly through subsidiaries while in 2014 three new representative offices have been established in Colombia, Turkey, Russia and South Africa; in other countries, Biolchim is extremely active through a strong and reliable network of partnerships with independent distributors and importers. Biolchim is considered among the most dynamic companies on the international markets. Biolchim is indeed constantly developing, thanks to a new company strategy which can be synthesized in 4 key points.
1. Fostering innovation
Biolchim has improved the R&D Division, a team of agronomists, engineers, chemists, biotechnologists, and biologists constantly involved in the development of innovative products and technologies. Biolchim’s R&D Team cooperates closely with Universities and Research Institutes all over the world with a view to transfer Knowledge directly to the field. The working approach is based on 3 founding principles:
- innovative raw materials, especially botanical extracts and compounds of vegetal origin, to combine agronomic efficacy with environmental sustainability;
- high-tech manufacturing processes, to keep the biostimulant properties of plant extracts and natural molecules unaltered;
- large scale product experimentation, to ensure the highest standards of safety and effectiveness in all agricultural contexts.
2. Creating value through people
In today’s rapidly changing and highly competitive marketplace, the source of value creation consists in intangible assets rather than in tangible ones.
In fact, knowledge and know-how are essential requirements to achieve challenging goals and long lasting results. Biolchim invests a large share of its annual turnover in talentship, that is scouting for young talents with high professional profiles which are trained and brought into the company to serve customers effectively and thoroughly.
3. Shaping the future
Biolchim is among the founders of the European Biostimulant Industry Council (EBIC), which presently gathers 56 members. EBIC is aimed to participate proactively in relevant regulatory discussions at the European Commission, which is reviewing the existing regulation on fertilizers (EC n° 2003/2003). Current national and European regulations on agricultural inputs are ill-adapted to defining harmonized rules for biostimulants. As a result, the sector is operating in a fragmented and unclear frame. Harmonized and appropriate regulation will allow the creation of a robust european market for biostimulants, guaranteeing safe and effective products are put on the market while fostering continued innovation.
4. Being close to the market
Biolchim operates worldwide with a Sales Support Network of specialists ready to meet the specific requirements of each and every customer. Biolchim’s specialists provide retailers and farmers with adequate technical and commercial support, allowing them to respond to any agricultural requirement with the highest profit. Biolchim’s sales support network is constantly in touch with the R&D and Marketing Teams with up-to-date feedback on the requests of the market which is essential to develop new products and sustain the distribution of the existing ones.
