Biobest Group N.V. has successfully acquired the remaining 40% share in Biobest Antalya from Antilsan. This transaction marks the culmination of a longstanding partnership that began as a joint venture in 1998 and evolved into a fully-fledged production and distribution company in 2014. Biobest Antalya, renowned for bumblebee pollination and biological control in Turkey, is poised to leverage the country’s robust horticultural prospects.
