ARGENTINA-  Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC), and Koppert Argentina, a leader in the market of biological solutions for agricultural purposes, have announced a partnership to incorporate Koppert’s biological solutions into LDC’s inputs portfolio. 

LDC, being a leading global merchant and processor of agricultural goods, will bolster its agricultural products portfolio with this partnership, thereby supporting more sustainable farming practices in Argentina.

Founded in 1851, the Louis Dreyfus Company has been a merchant of agricultural goods for almost two centuries, with its activities across a diversified range of business lines helping to feed and clothe up to 500 million people every year.

On the other hand, Koppert, founded in 1967, has been providing crop protection solutions globally for the last 56 years, providing growers and farmers with products and knowledge to restore the natural balance in their crops, improving crop health, resilience, and yield.

Koppert’s biodefensive products further expand our diversified portfolio of innovative and sustainable agricultural solutions, in line with our commitment to creating fair and sustainable value in our supply chains, for the benefit of current and future generations,” said Bernabé Santos, LDC’s Head of Fertilizers & Inputs for South & West Latin America.

Similarly, through this partnership, Koppert Argentina will benefit from LDC’s extensive commercial and agricultural networks in the country.

“It will allow us to continue approaching all producers who decide to incorporate biological solutions in their production plans, promoting crop health and fostering ecological balance,” said Fabián Díaz, General Manager of Koppert for Argentina and Uruguay.

Biological products allow sustainable crop management, combining solutions for health, integrated pest management, nutrition, and biostimulation, helping to preserve the environment.

The two companies formed a similar partnership in Brazil in 2022, which now is extended to Argentina, capitalizing on favorable market conditions in the local agricultural sector, where they agree that the producer is more open to incorporating biological products into their crop protection strategy while meeting the growing global demand for more environmentally friendly products.

Meanwhile, in another partnership, LDC and Instanta Sp. z o.o recently inaugurated ILD Coffee Vietnam, a joint venture freeze-dried instant coffee facility located in Binh Duong province, Vietnam, with an annual production capacity of 5,600 metric tons of freeze-dried instant coffee.
