“This opportunity is a chance to introduce Canadian registered products in new markets and explore further outlets for label uses,” said Yannick Bidon, president and CEO of AEF Global. “AEF has over 22 registrations in Canada, placing us as a top biopesticide leader. More Canadian registrations are on the way but it’s time for the current ones to travel further and working with BioWorks will allow just that. We have great active ingredients, made in Canada, and we believe there is a big need for them elsewhere.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with AEF Global,” said Bill Foster, president and CEO of BioWorks. “With the partnership, we are bringing AEF Global leadership in Canada together with BioWorks leadership in the United States and Mexico. Their focus on ecological products fits naturally with our plant nutrition and biological pest and disease control products. Combining the AEF Global products to our portfolio strengthens our ability to meet customer needs.”
