With the support of Unigrains and Carvest, Leygatech will accelerate the market trend towards recyclable mono-material films.

As minority owners, Carvest, the regional investment structure of Crédit Agricole Group, and Unigrains, the agri-food specialist investor, have joined Leygatech, the leading French company in recyclable plastic packaging films with high barrier functionalities.

Thierry Bonnefoy, CEO of Leygatech, said: ”Unigrains’ experience in the agri-food sector is of particular interest and offers clear synergies with our own expertise. At the same time, with Crédit Agricole, our historical banking partner, we share strong values and local anchors that are expressed through this transaction. Finally, the experience of both Unigrains and Carvest will enable us to accelerate our international development.”

Through the conservation and protective properties of its polyethene-based mono-material films, Leygatech provides unique added value in the flexible plastics value chain, where substitution is not possible.
