Optisol, Vétroz

Optisol is a leading special for plant-based nutrition in Switzerland. For nearly 50 years, the Valais-based company has processed the droppings from Swiss poultry production into high-quality fertilizer. The organic raw materials are sourced exclusively in Switzerland. Optisol recycles them by natural means and thereby creates a close, sustainable cycle of nutrients. The Optisol plant in Vétroz is located near the parent animal facilities and thus the raw materials. Local recycling means that long transport routes can be avoided and that natural cycles can be optimally integrated into the product process. Through enrichment with special active substances, more than 40 different highly effective types of fertilizer are created from poultry droppings with sophisticated recipes. Whether solid or liquid, from standard product to biodegradable special fertilizer – Optisol offers the optimal solution for every culture. The products are primarily used in agriculture as well as in wine, fruit and vegetable cultivation.
