From the Chairman's Desk

Welcome to BIOSTADT

The idea started over 30 years ago as a modest venture in the area of seaweed-based technology acquired from the US, and has now flourished into a full-blown, diversified organization operating all over India and in several parts of the globe.


Over a period of time, Biostadt has diversified into a range of seaweed-based biotechnological inputs using fermentation technology, under the well-known brand 'Biozyme'.


Biostadt also deals in crop protection chemicals, representing renowned Japanese multinationals such as Mitsui, Hokko, Sumitomo, etc., covering a range of applications in insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and weedicides. It has also ventured into a range of aquaculture products for pond management, with an alert field force to cover the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.


Biostadt entered into a 50/50 joint venture in Vietnam known as Vinh Thinh Joint Stock Company which focuses on the area of aquaculture, and is diversifying in the area of agrochemicals covering the Indo-China region. Biostadt has also acquired a shrimp hatchery off the Nhatrang coast of Vietnam to strengthen the aquaculture business portfolio.

Through our International division, our products are sold in over 20 countries across the globe. Our major focus is our brand WOKOZIM. The fermentation based biotechnological inputs are widely accepted by farmers all over the world.


Biostadt has made its foray into the huge, untapped market of hybrid Seeds, both for field crops as well as vegetable hybrids.


In the area of hybrid seeds, Biostadt added another feather in its cap with the acquisition of 'New Nandi Seeds Co'. It is a 40 year old company with an excellent brand equity in the market. The acquisition offers Biostadt tremendous synergies in terms of R&D and geographical coverage.


The organization is fuelled by a young, professional and self-motivated team of 700 Biostadtians out of which 100 are working in our wholly owned subsidiary, Biostadt Philippines. This is the second biggest market for Biostadt outside India.


The success of Biostadt would not have been possible without the dynamism of our people. The three birds of our tri-bird logo represent Speed, Growth and Teamwork, which has inspired Biostadtians to reach out to our visionary goal of achieving 1000 cr by 2019.
