Atens is a biotech company that powers the transition to a sustainable agriculture with
microorganisms as a 100% sustainable and ecological way to optimize soil management.
The Green Revolution
Since 1994, Atens has evolved from the pioneer in microorganisms, into the worldwide reference in the biofertilizer and biostimulant segment through a singular focus on delivering the ultimate biosolutions, day after day.
We investigate, produce and commercialize innovative microbiological solutions in nutrition, biostimulation, and plant protection, based on natural active substances for the care of crops, health, and the environment.
Our innovative technologies are a win-win: they decrease the use of traditional fertilizers and chemical pesticides while reducing their environmental impact, and still achieve the farmers’ yield and profit goals.
30 years of proven innovation
From its beginning in 1994, Atens has redefined and revolutionized the way farmers cultivate their land today.
Atens’ history is marked by our passion for nature and track record of continuous innovation to consistently deliver the best-performing biotech solutions.
To do so, we collaborate with an extensive network of international public and private centres and organizations, including scientists and agro-industrialists from prestigious Research Centers, Universities, and Institutions.
Together, we investigate the biological mechanisms and how they transform life to discover breakthrough solutions that are 100% sustainable.
What we do
The challenge of Green Revolution
Atens began with a simple but game-changer idea: Ignite the green revolution.
We offer the biotechnology you need to drive you business forward and overcome yous challenges.
We empower you with the growth of your crops, to give you the confidence to make your goals a reality and, together, make a difference.

Our commitment to a sustainable agriculture is in every detail. It starts with partnering with a scientific network and discovering solutions, and continues all the way through caring for the soil where crops grow and collaborating with farmers.
Everything that we do raises the bar on what it means to be both, performant and sustainable.
Unlock the power of microorganisms
We believe in the power of nature to thrive. As we delve into the amazing world of fungi, we realize how wise and fascinating nature is.
Nature offers endless possibilities; from mycorrhiza’s symbiosis to Trichoderma that competes with other fungi for space and nutrients. At Atens, we explore and decode nature’s incredible properties, to provide powerful products and services, while delivering confidence and know-how.
