Eden Research says French sign-off for biofungicide opens up significant market

Eden Research’s biofungicide, Mevalone, has been signed off by regulatory agency ANSES for use in apples and pears. The company said France gave the green light for Mevalone to be used on apples and pears to prevent post-harvest storage diseases. The sign-off from regulatory agency ANSES opens up a significant new market for the business.

France produces close to 1.6 mln tons of apples annually and is consistently among the top three apple producing countries in the EU. Mevalone’s advantage over traditional crop protection is it can be applied in the critical last weeks of the season when skin damage occurs leading to rot in storage, the sustainable biopesticides and plastic-free products group said.

Chief executive Sean Smith: "The new use of Mevalone on apples, which are classed as a major crop in France, is an exciting development for Eden, and grows our addressable market in this key European territory.”
