We are what we eat. Consumers worry about the health of the planet and accept no compromise on food safety. In an increasingly globalized economy with products and ingredients traded across the world, the production, processing and transportation of food require critical attention. Consumers demand greater transparency. New farming techniques emerge, technologies evolve, regulations tighten, compliance does not tolerate compromise. As healthy food also needs a healthy world, food safety is an increasingly complex challenge that requires a holistic approach. But it also offers huge market opportunities. Kersia was founded to take on this challenge at every stage of the food supply chain from farm to fork, be a pioneer and market leader in this field. Pooling the strengths of several international suppliers of solutions and services in farming and agri-food processing in over 90 countries (Hypred, LCB, Antigerm, Medentech, G3…), Kersia will pursue the opportunities offered by this growing market. As a pure player recognized for its technical excellence and foresight approach, Kersia is dedicated to paving a new path to a food safe world.

Food you can trust

From farm to fork, food safety is today
the #1 concern within the food sector.

With the emergence of new sources and forms of contamination, the immunization of certain bacterial sources and the desire to move away from the use of antibiotics, pesticides and chemical preservatives, the challenges are immense. Preventing risks associated with the transmission of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens to operators and to consumers is the primary concern throughout the food chain. Everyone involved – farmers, veterinarians, suppliers to the farm industry, food processing plant operators, retailers…- has a stake and a responsibility in the safe production and processing of food. Failure at any stage means putting the life of consumers and staff at risk. Failure can have disastrous short and long-term consequences for a business. Failure can engage the personal legal responsibility of managers and staff.

Inventing solutions for tomorrow

Everyone involved in the food chain needs a business partner with the scientific expertise and field experience to deliver customized answers having identified the risks and critical control points.

Food safety is our core field of expertise, recognized all over the world. Our products and services prevent disease and contamination in both animals and humans. Our global solutions approach delivers food and farm biosecurity. They are constantly reinvented and optimized from the sharing of results obtained on the ground and the findings of our R&D efforts, to guarantee full compliance with new regulations. We offer unique skills based on deep-rooted science developed globally and twinned with an empirical approach at local level to tailor our proposals to individual needs. We improve farm performance and add value to the food industry.

100% dedicated to food safety, we intend to lead the way as the world benchmark operator and most trusted partner to our customers.

Helping our clients solve today’s food safety issues is not enough. Enabling them to stay one step ahead will be our ongoing goal, both at a local and a global level. Focused on the future, we will help them anticipate changes with innovative and far-sighted solutions that improve consumer and operator safety, preserve their company’s reputation and boost the sustainable performance of their business. Our highly committed employees are passionate about our mission and take pride in its noble objective. Exclusively focused on this ambition and supported by an engaged shareholder, we will devote all our resources, energy, regulatory and R&D effort to food safety. We are convinced that this is the best road to create value for all of our stakeholders (end-consumers, clients, public authorities, employees, shareholders…) and for society as a whole.

KERSIA, a new name
for a strategy tailored to a changing world

Hypred, LCB, Antigerm, Medentech, G3… all these companies have worked hard over the years to deliver farm and food biosecurity through innovative solutions and services.

The breadth and depth of their combined product offering gives them a much larger geographic footprint and a broader market. But, the unison of these respected companies answers a more ambitious goal: inventing a food safe world in an ever changing and challenging environment, with a results-driven and global solutions approach.

Easily pronounced in multiple languages, the word Kersia draws its roots from the history and mission of our company. The prefix Ker – pronounced “care” in English - is derived from the ancient Celtic word “caer”, a fortified house or hamlet. A word perfectly suited to a company 100% dedicated to protecting food and people from contamination, as underlined by the last three letters of KERSIA: SIA - Safe Innovation in Alimentation.

“We are butterflies.
Earth is our chrysalis.”

A logo with meaning

We have chosen a logo which evokes a butterfly, a symbol of a formidable metamorphosis.

In many cultures around the world, butterflies are associated with endurance, change, hope and life. The butterfly is emblematic of the profound transformation of our Group, and of our ability to share with our clients our best practices developed over the years, just like butterflies pollinate over long distances. As a deep and powerful representation of life, the butterfly also symbolizes the metamorphosis that agriculture and food production processes are going through today.

We are a knowledge-based organization, taking data driven decisions.
We are constantly in tune with the latest developments which could impact food safety solutions and compliance regulations
We grow on a collaborative culture, benefiting from the constant sharing of solutions developed to solve the problems confronted by each individual client
Our innovations are continuously optimized and tested against the most up-to-date and standardized practices, integrating the need for 100% compliance anywhere, anytime.
We thrive on open source innovations through partnerships with visionary start-ups
