This agreement is in line with the ambition that has always distinguished Valagro, namely building together with our Customers a path marked by the achievement of common business objectives and therefore shared success and growth. This approach is based on a crucial principle that has always guided us in the market and distinguishes us from our competitors, i.e. the centrality of the customer. This same approach forms the basis of the collaboration with Malagrow for selecting and rewarding the best Valagro 2017 producer for the EMEA area, another important milestone that testifies to the positive results obtained from the partnership with our historic Hungarian distributor”.

With this new agreement, Malagrow undertakes to bring Valagro innovation to the agricultural markets of Romania and Slovakia as well, fully embracing the Group’s approach, namely to satisfy the need of farmers to have more abundant, better quality and more profitable crops, which are obtained in a more sustainable way. The achievement of these objectives is testament to the excellent results that have led our customer, Lajos Szántó, to acquire, to our great satisfaction, the title of Valagro Best Grower EMEA 2017.”
