Fine chemicals and plant protection

FAME – Fine Chemicals and Agrochemicals Manufacturers in Europe

FAME is a committee of EFCG that represents the European Producers and Custom Manufacturers of Agrochemical active ingredients and intermediates for ISO regulated fine chemicals.

Our activities

Companies active in EFCG’s FAME committee produce fine chemicals by using cutting edge technologies. Fine chemicals are pure substances that are often tailor-made at relatively small volumes by our members, who can deliver specific chemical technology and technical specifications needed by larger multinationals.

Our companies are mainly active in the crop protection industry but also act as crucial manufacturing partners to many different industries, contributing positively to their premium products.
