Berkshire Partners portfolio company FoodChain ID announced that it has acquired Lexagri International. Lexagri verifies, harmonises, structures and distributes global agricultural data. The company’s services are designed to enhance the performance, quality, safety and traceability of agricultural products.
“Lexagri’s services are focused on data enhancement, and their data harmonisation processes transform raw, untreated agricultural data into standardised, validated, and accessible data sets,” said Brad Riemenapp, CEO of FoodChain ID. ”This expands FoodChain ID’s scope of regulatory and compliance content into crop protection and brand registration data, allowing us to serve our food customers even more effectively and to strengthen our reputation as a trusted source of data-driven, actionable insights from farm to fork.”
Lexagri’s offering includes Homologa, the largest pesticide database in the market, according to FoodChain. The Saint-Julien-en-Genevois, France-headquartered company also has a mobile app, PhytoScan, that leverages an integrated label scanner for on-farm use that provides immediate access to product regulatory and safety information. Other products include Basagri and Phytodata, which are reference data sources for crop protection information in France that compare and contrast registered and certified data.
FoodChain is a provider of tech-enabled food safety, quality and sustainability services. The company is headquartered in Fairfield, Iowa, and was acquired by Berkshire in 2020.
