Our mission

To deliver targeted innovation to sustainably improve agricultural yields and contribute to global food security.

Through a proactive approach to sustainable innovation, we strive for our products to have the performance you expect while also delivering sustainable benefits in use. The end goal; an increase in food production without an adverse impact on the environment.

We have committed ourselves to be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients and by 2030 we will be Climate, Land and People Positive. As well as striving to achieve the ambitious sustainability targets we have set ourselves, we are committed to helping you our customer achieve your own sustainability goals.

Why is sustainable crop protection important?

The world is changing. With the growing population increasing by two billion in the coming years, the increasing demand for food will require increased agricultural production. We are using smart science to maximise land productivity, by increasing yield and increasing resilience, whilst protecting soil health and biodiversity.

Why should you work with us?

Formulating agrochemical or crop protection products can be challenging. Whether this is because your active ingredient is prone to crystal growth or due to the need to include high loading levels making formulation space limited; formulating can often be difficult and frustrating.

Our aim is to make your job easier by not only providing high performance, sustainable products but by sharing our knowledge to make your formulation development as simple as possible. Discover how we go beyond the supply of chemicals in our Beyond Chemicals brochure, giving you an insight into formulation development at Croda.
