FCI & EGNO Chimie merged to become FCI, a single company


For over 40 years, we have been developing, under secret agreement or for our own account, numerous original molecules in the fields of Flavours & Fragrances, biocontrol, cosmetics and raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry.

Pragmatic, efficient manufacturing processes combined with the quality control enable us to meet a wide range of needs for intermediate and finished products.

All our products are produced in our own workshops in Normandy. They are guaranteed free from allergens and GMOs. Raw materials of animal origin are excluded from our workshops. Most of our products are Kosher certified and suitable for Halal diets.

Our catalogue contains over 200 manufactured or sourced molecules: floral, fruity, exotic, toasted, green notes, etc.

At the same time, we develop, industrialise and regularly produce custom synthesis products.

Based on a request for a molecule, we can quickly assess the technical feasibility and target price of the product before launching feasibility tests in the laboratory.

We then develop, on a laboratory scale, a synthesis route based on the literature or the process resulting from our partner customer’s research.

After supplying an initial laboratory sample, we can rapidly transfer the process to pilot and then industrial scale, to supply volumes ranging from a few kilos to several tonnes.

For over 10 years, in collaboration with the French National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA), we have also applied our specific chemical know-how to offer several families of aggregation pheromones that can be used as raw materials for biocontrol.

Biocontrol is a set of plant protection methods based on the use of natural mechanisms. Pheromones attract a targeted insect which is trapped to protect crops.

In this way, we are helping to protect banana plantations, palm groves and coconut plantations throughout the world, enabling our customers to avoid using insecticides.

Whatever the sector of activity, FCI benefits from the support and expertise of the other companies in the YXENS Group: ELIXENS & LA MESTA.
