BREIZH ALGAE TOUR 2017

A HEALTHY FOOD CHAIN FOR A BALANCED MICROBIOME, THANKS TO ALGAE!

10-09-2017 / 13-09-2017 FRANCE | Brittany

SAVE THE DATES FOR THE OLMIX'S ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM 2017!

Scientific and technical progress in algae and their key role in nutrition and health for plants, animals and humans.

In 2015 we celebrated the Olmix Group's 20th anniversary in Paris and Brittany. In 2016 the Breizh Algae Tour went outside France, to Amsterdam (the Netherlands), to celebrate this major event as well as the the 80th anniversary of Melspring.

In 2017, a new milestone has been achieved: Olmix Group has joined forces with PRP Technologies, a European specialist in biostimulants for agroecology. This new context offers a unique opportunity for the new Group to go even further in developing major innovative solutions for sustainable farming and meet the global challenge of feeding a population of 9 billion by 2050 while respecting the environment and future generations.

At this year's Breizh Algae Tour we will give a warm welcome to PRP Technologies to our Group. Besides, we will update our distributors and partners on the latest progresses in research and development through our symposium ‘A healthy food chain for a balanced microbiome, Thanks to algae!’. The BAT 2017 will be an excellent opportunity to share our experience and to discuss how products based on algae can substitute antibiotics, pesticides and chemical additives.
