Timeline of Bioline Agrosciences in the Biocontrol Industry
Bioline AgroSciences Ltd founded in 1979 in Colchester, England. In 1990, another production and distribution site opened in California, United States. The company was purchased by Ciba-Geigy AG in December 1992 and became a wholly owned subsidiary in 1995.
After the merger of Ciba and Sandoz in 1996, the company became known as Novartis BCM Limited. In 1999, a new site in Little Clacton, England purchased and customized for insect production to cope with the increase in demand for beneficial insects in bicontrol. Later in November 2000, Novartis spun off its agricultural business to merge with Zeneca Agrochemicals to form Syngenta. Novartis BCM became known as Syngenta Bioline in January 2001.
In the meantime, Biotop was created in the 80’s, following a partnership with the French National Institute of Research (INRA) which started in the 70’s. Biotop developed then a full range of products for professional users, but also settled up a special range of beneficials for hobby gardeners.
Following in March 2016, Invivo and Bioline Agrosciences acquired Bioline business, born with the merged of Biotop.
Later in January 2019, Bioline Agrosciences and Biocolor created a joint-venture in Almeria, Spain, called Bioline Iberia.
