Since the formation of Syngenta in 2000, out of the agri-businesses of Zeneca and Novartis, the company has established itself as a leader in the Russian crop protection market and one of the largest suppliers of quality hybrid seeds. With a wide network of representative offices in over 30 Russian cities and more than 600 employees (doubled since 2007) Syngenta has been continuously expanding its operations into the country. In 2017, Chinese state-owned ChemChina completed a deal to acquire Syngenta.
Syngenta has been consistently localizing and investing heavily in Russia. On October 24, 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony for Syngenta’s CP asset took place at the Yelets site of the Lipetsk Special Economic Zone, which would be home to the prospective operations. Syngenta is investing RUB 1.6 billion in its plant to create more than 40 jobs in the Yelets district. By 2021, 80% of Syngenta CP portfolio for Russian farmers will be produced in Russia.
In the beginning of September 2019 Syngenta announced about the acquisition of all relevant assets of The Cropio Group, an Ag Tech company with a presence in over 50 countries, but with a primary focus in Eastern Europe.
