An opportunity to make a difference
Safety, empowerment, ethics, dedication and striving are the values that define us at ASCENZA.
We make the commitment, to the various entities that are by our side in the mission of feeding a growing population, to make a difference through our work and perpetuate our values among our partners.
Agriculture is moving fast and needs answers to face its huge challenges in the coming decades. Agriculture needs to feed the planet and to strive to be an example in “ESG” practices, these targets are fundamental and contain enormous complexity. Technology, knowledge, education, investments, and new ways of carry out the food production will be the engines of this requested transformation. We have an active role to play here, in developing new agri-input solutions and concepts to help agriculture to meet its targets, critical to preserve the planet and mankind.

Sustainability & Stewardship
We promote a safe, sustainable and ethical use of our products along the product life-cycle. We aim to enhance the sustainability of our business by taking proactive stewardship actions at each stage of the product lifecycle; from discovery to product use by the consumer and final disposal of the waste or empty containers. We ensure that our innovations are socially and environmentally responsible working with stakeholders to promote safe product management within their own operations and to answer to their concerns and communicate honestly on our performance and product portfolio.
Carlos Serrano, Sustainability Expert
We empower farmers to farm our future, a future that belongs to every one of us on this planet. Our commitment is to bring adapted portfolios of strategic crops to core and new markets, compliant with market needs and local legislation, but with a good balance of differentiation and formulation quality. It is strategically important to us that we leverage the customer experience to the maximum, backed by all our good work in the supply, industrial, marketing and regulatory fields. Our goal is for our products to provide the best experience possible.
Rui Correia, ASCENZA Central Marketing Director
Agriculture is part of every citizen's life. We need to eat at least twice a day, preferably a well-balanced diet. Today we recognise that a diet rich in vegetables and fruits has an impact on our quality of life. That’s why it is so important to guarantee fruit and vegetable production at an affordable price, with consumer safety at the forefront as well. Pests, weeds and diseases are responsible for 40% of food loss in Europe, so consumer security and safety depend on the quantity and quality of production, and all of these depend on plant protection registration systems and the correct use of products by farmers. At ASCENZA, we satisfy every requirement, complying with the most demanding registration systems while training and giving advice to farmers.
Mónica Teixeira, ASCENZA Product Safety, Regulatory and R&D Director
The quality of ASCENZA's products and services goes beyond the satisfaction of our customers. We take responsibility for reinventing ourselves, improving our processes and products and meeting the expectations of market players in a sustainable way. Our quality is attested by the recognition of our clients, competent authorities, the market and by the certifications and accreditations we have received over the years.
Paula Pereira, ASCENZA Quality Manager
