"22 years ago, we had a vision: to anticipate the change and transformation that the agricultural industry is undergoing at present. We developed a model that seeks to use the most efficient active substances in Nature, and we applied the most advanced technologies to turn them into effective solutions for combating pests and diseases affecting crops. Today it may seem like a constant in the marketplace but two decades ago we were pioneers in opening up this path. For this reason, for us, innovation has always been a synonym of progress even though for a long time it meant going against the current", Seipasa's CEO emphasised.
The National Innovation Award is an acknowledgment of people and organisations who have made innovation an essential element in the development of their professional strategy and business growth.
