The history of Fertagro

  • The Talpe family started agricultural activities in 1921 as a Belgian wholesaler and quickly expanded to the neighboring countries of France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
  • In 1979, the Talpe family takes over the distribution company “Croenen en Carlier” from BASF and founded “Impextal”, a subsidiary in France.
  • In the 1980s, the export division “Fertiltrade” was established and the animal feed company was split off from the fertilizer activities.
  • In the early 2000s, the “Talpe group” is restructured. The establishment of Fertagro Handling NV, Fertagro Trading NV and the strengthening of the export division Fertiltrade, with the contribution of Conexa, entail a considerable trade expansion.
  • In 2012, Fertagro Trading LLC is established in Miami (USA) to further expand the existing trading activities in North and South America.
  • In December 2019, the Talpe family decided to further focus on Miami. Fertagro Handling N.V. is taken over by the company Fertibat-Appro S.A.,
  • a sector colleague with a solid reputation and expertise.
  • Fertibat Appro brings a new vision and dynamism that prepares our company for the next decades....
