We’re on a mission…

To develop the best growing medium for efficient, more local, and sustainable horticulture. Why? Let us explain.


Where does the future of horticulture lie? In high tech!

We’re in the middle of a time of transitions. The rapidly changing horticultural sector is no exception, as is more than evident in the growing interest in sustainability and precision cultivation. We’ve already noticed the consequences in the changing demand for growing media. In fact, demand in general for green products and healthy food will only increase in the coming years. If we want to produce more yet reduce our impact on the climate, people, and the environment, we have to innovate.

Technology is the only solution.

The grower of the future is looking for substrates that perform better in sustainable, high-tech cultivation systems. That’s where the real challenge lies for those developing substrates. We’re happy to provide you with the ultimate in cultivation plugs, right now.


We’re taking things a step further…

We need to do something about the huge volumes we ship every day. There are more efficient solutions. What if we supplied a semi-finished product? And the automation needed so you could produce Nygaia on site? That would give you complete control over shape and fibre density, and the amount you produce. You would exert complete control, and have access to fresh substrate at all times. Overproduction would no longer be an issue, and it would significantly reduce the number of transport movements. What an impact that would have! That dream is closer than you think...

Our mission is to make sustainable, high-tech cultivation a reality through an eco-friendly substrate solution and the automation with which you can produce your own substrate. A comprehensive integrated concept in other words, that pays homage to Mother Nature. We call it: Nygaia.


More sustainable, more control

The developers


Leading the market by delivering what’s needed today and developing what’s needed tomorrow. We’re resolutely building on our lead by drawing on over a century of expertise in commercial horticulture, constantly looking for renewable sources, ground-breaking substrate mixtures, and innovative solutions. Due to our worldwide presence, we can soon make Nygaia available to any forward-thinking grower, anywhere in the world.

Maan Biobased Products

We look further where others give up, convinced that the better solution is waiting to be found. We are discoverers. Strengthened by our vast expertise in biobased and biodegradable materials, we foster cross-over innovations from prototype to process, to end product and production. The horticultural sector holds a special place in our hearts. Research & development today, to produce Nygaia tomorrow. We’re ready.
