Syngenta Group Co. Ltd., announced on June 18, 2020, the official launch of Syngenta Group, a new global leader in agricultural science and innovation. Under a single entity, it unites the strengths of Syngenta AG, headquartered in Switzerland, ADAMA, based in Israel, and the agricultural businesses of Sinochem, based in China. The new entity, headquartered in Switzerland, has 48,000 employees in more than 100 countries, and had sales of USD 23 billion in 2019.
From its inception, Syngenta Group is the global market leader in crop protection, the global number three in seeds, the market leader in fertilizer in China and, with its Modern Agriculture Platform (MAP) Farmer Solution Centers, the leading agriculture services provider in China. It offers comprehensive agronomic solutions and digital agricultural services. With 15 key production sites the Group has strong capacity to supply farmers with the solutions they need. The Group’s mission is to deploy scientific innovations, technologies, and services to help farmers sustainably provide the world with better food, feed, fiber and fuel, while conserving resources and protecting the environment.
Each of the companies incorporated into Syngenta Group have a long history of accomplishment, reaching back over 250 years. In addition to Switzerland, Israel and China, the Group has deep roots in many other countries, including the USA where the global Syngenta Seeds business and R&D are headquartered, Brazil and UK. The Syngenta Group is among the most diverse businesses in the world.
The new Group places a high value on ethics and integrity, seeking to create value for all its stakeholders – farmers, employees, suppliers and society. “Our sustainability as an enterprise depends on the health of the soil and the environment as a whole,” said Fyrwald, formerly CEO of Syngenta AG, who becomes Syngenta Group CEO. “We measure our success not just by our business performance, but by the benefits we bring to farming and the environment.”
