By 2050 farmers will need to achieve a 70% production increase to cover food needs. This can only be done by optimizing the fertility of agricultural land in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way. One of the elements to do so is the use of organic fertilizers.
This is why Samagro produces quality organic fertilizers that improve and maintain soil balance in the longer term. Purpose is to work on the most sustainable solution possible for the Flemish and Dutch manure surplus. To this end, Samagro works on building long-term relationships with both suppliers of manure (farmers, processors and biogas installations) and users (farmers and horticulturalists, fruit and vegetable growers) of organic fertilizers.

First Flemish Manure decree: to prevent soil pollution through agriculture, manure from areas with a surplus is transported to areas with a shortage. This information is kept in the “manure bank”. Johan and Yvan start exporting poultry manure to France.
European regulation makes composting manure for export mandatory. Through this process, the compost is made bacteria and germ free. This becomes Johan’s specialization and for that purpose he creates Samagro. The company focuses exclusively on export. Yvan remains head of the poultry trade.
