Our subsidiaries

An innovative biotech company, leader in the Latin American biosourced additives market.

Founded in 2008, Yes Sinergy draws on more than 15 years of R&D aimed at adding-value to by-products of the sugar-cane industry. As a result of all this work carried out in close cooperation with Brazilian universities and world-class researchers, the Group is now recognized as a specialist in the selection and production of high-value derivatives of natural extracts.

Thanks to this unique expertise, Yes Sinergy develops innovative solutions for preventing the adverse effects of mycotoxins, improving digestive comfort, preventing contamination by pathogens and stimulating the immune responses of both livestock and domestic animals while reducing the use of antibiotics.

From basic research to providing solutions to market leaders.

After 15 years of research in collaboration with the National Superior School of Agronomy of Toulouse (ENSAT) on substances extracted from wood and plants, a team of researchers led by Dr Marie Morard created the company Bois Valor in 2004. The company set up its headquarters, research laboratory and industrial site in Saint-Juéry, near Albi (South-West of France), to exploit the patent that resulted from the research work on a unique extraction process.

The product portfolio consists of registered biostimulants (Autorisation de Mise sur le Marché – AMM), seed coatings and solvent-free extracted plant molecules, all of which are marketed to key players in the agricultural world, leaders in plant protection, biostimulants, seeds and organic fertilisation.
