Founded in Geneva in 1983 at the instigation of Jean-Christophe Egli, Ifaco is the first entity of the Agro Companies Group to come into being. The second generation joined him 20 years later and succeeded him in 2010. Since then, Rachel, his daughter, and Erwan Boubet have been developing a dynamic of expansion by developing existing structures and acquiring new ones. Together they created the Agro Companies International Group in 2016.
As a family-owned company, the Agro Companies International group relies on a strong corporate culture. Our success has been built on fundamental values that inspire our work day after day:
