The Irish company OGT, specialist in harvesting and processing of seaweed, becomes part of Tradecorp

The acquisition will give Tradecorp preferential access to top quality raw material which will strengthen and increase Tradecorp’s biostimulants range.

Both companies are reinforced with this acquisition, since OGT (Oilean Glas Teo) will also have the support and strength of Tradecorp, belonging to a strong international group with a well-established worldwide commercial structure and a wide and complete product portfolio.

This integration initiates a new stage for both companies that are working on the synergies of Tradecorp’s experience on the agricultural sector and OGT’s experience in biostimulants and the amenities market.
