Beotanics confirms significant expansion plan

Commissioner Phil Hogan, commends Beotanics’ growing European impact in providing nutritionally balanced, environmentally-friendly crops

We were delighted that a large crowd of distinguished guests visited us in Kilkenny on April 24th 2019, to meet the Beotanics team as part of the announcement of our expansion plans.

European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Phil Hogan commenting on the €1 million expansion investment said: “Beotanics is now a key Irish player on the international stage in discovering new ways to feed the planet, improve human health, balance resources, enhance biodiversity and reduce the environmental impact of crop production.  It is a true example of a firm which is acting local and thinking global and by doing so providing locally innovative, viable and sustainable Rural Development alternatives. It is growing the Irish rural economy on the strength of Irish environmental factors”.

 “Your work showcases Ireland and Europe as a leading global innovator in producing crops in a natural, transparent and fair way, to enhance taste, appearance and nutritional value,” Commissioner Hogan told the Beotanics team.

Our founder and CEO Pat Fitzgerald commented, “We want to be the go-to experts for our chosen crops and targeted, evolving food ingredients with high nutritional and bio active levels. The future of food is re-adjusting to become more plant-based. We’ve specialised in plant production development for over 25 years and this is a necessary natural progression for the business”.
