About Us

Agrauxine is the business unit of Lesaffre dedicated to BioSolutions for vegetal productions. We develop, manufacture, and commercialize BioSolutions based on microorganisms and derivates – yeast, bacteria and fungi.

Our ambition is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and performing agriculture and, ultimately, the production of more healthful nutrition.

Our Expertise

From cell to plant, our goal is to ensure our products are designed to meet technical and economical requirements of farmers & distributors worldwide. Our in-house R&D, manufacturing, sales and marketing expertise allow us to deliver safe, innovative solutions to our customers.


Our microbiology expertise focuses on yeast, fungi and bacteria. We identify and screen new microorganisms and their derivates for future product development. We provide technical support for our customers, as well as studies on our products storage conditions or their compatibility with other products.

Plant Pathology

We develop methodologies to identify new candidates and evaluate the efficiency of our products on fungal disease control. Our diseases analyses are performed on plant tissues, plants and fruits.

Molecular Biology & Biochemistry

We develop molecular markers (ex: for gene activation measurement) and biochemical tools (ex : for metabolite accumulation measurement) to:
  • Characterize both the efficiency and mode of action of our products at the cell level.
  • Assess the impact of our products on microbial populations.

Plant Physiology

Our plant physiologists are experts in both specialty and row crops. We perform experiments under controlled conditions (growth chambers) as well as semi-controlled conditions (greenhouses).
