10 years in the service of
The Éléphant Vert Group (EV) was born in 2012 from the conviction that a new sustainable and inclusive agricultural model could be created and spread. Initially created in Africa to provide a natural solution against locust and grasshopper invasions, with its product Novacrid, EV then developed as a specialist in biostimulants and biocontrol.
Our ambition is to make efficient, healthy and sustainable agriculture possible on a large scale by offering an alternative to synthetic fertilizers and plant protection products. This is the roadmap that we have set with our new management, in the person of Peter Brändle, who joined us at the end of 2021.
