Exports bloom for local bio technology company

Levity Crop Science, one of Lancashire’s fastest growing businesses, is undergoing rapid expansion into new export markets around the world. Levity, winner of the 2017 ‘Most Innovative Business’ in the Red Rose awards, invested heavily in research and development and is now reaping the benefits, with a world class product range that helps farmers produce more and better food, using lower inputs.

In 2017, Levity has launched in the United States, Egypt and Jordan and it is now preparing to launch in a further eleven export markets – across North America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East – over the next six months, following completion of product registrations.

“Levity is undergoing unprecedented growth this year” commented Levity MD, Anna Weston. “After years of hard work by our research and development team, our products are now entering new markets and really catching the imagination of farmers around the world, following incredible field trial results”.

“Whilst our European sales are still growing, with new markets coming on board in France, our growth outside the EU has been phenomenal” added Levity’s Commercial Director, Mike Peters MBE. “The US market has grown quickly and in the Middle East and Africa, we have Egypt and Jordan underway and are preparing to launch in Algeria, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Ghana. In Asia, we are negotiating deals for China, India and the Philippines. It is an exciting time for Levity”.

“It is good to see our brand enter new export markets, as it reduces seasonality, having a wider geographic spread, more products and also help launching new crops,” observed Levity MD, David Marks. “Levity is developing truly game-changing products that make a big difference to the farmers that use them. We have put a lot of effort into proving the performance in independent trials and that is driving demand”.

Levity Crop Science is dedicated to the research and development of products for sustainable agriculture. Levity aims to develop products to help farmers produce more and better crops, with less resource, helping move agriculture around the world towards sustainability.
