Adisseo was born in France and grew up in China, Adisseo is rich in these cultural differences which allow us to be better than our competitors. The combination of East and West creates incredible richness that allows for great achievements, I am convinced that we are only at the beginning.
We are proud of this journey with Bluestar and SinoChem, to improve food safety in China, and this journey would not have been possible without the support of my team and all the employees of the company.”
