About us

Who we are

New Organic Planet (NOP), based in Funchal, started its activity in 2016 with the purpose of developing projects related to the agrifood sector, as well as promoting R&D in the scope of Organic Agriculture and the Agrifood Industry.

We are a company with ideas to undertake together, with the support of people and institutions. Our goal is to increase scientific production and promote research practices in the sense of developing new products and new businesses, in the sectors of Agriculture, Industry and Research.

In this context, we promote collaborative structures in order to foster entrepreneurship, creating opportunities for cooperation between the business and institutional fabric in terms of organic production and transformation.


Our mission is to be the preferred partner in creating value for companies in the agricultural, agro-industrial and agroforestry sectors.


Against a backdrop of worldwide demographic growth, changes in consumption patterns, accelerated technological development and climate change with environmental impacts, the sectors of agricultural and forestry production, agroindustrial and food processing are of strategic importance at a global level, creating unique opportunities for all agents in these sectors.

Through a competent, innovative and entrepreneurial technical team, we aim to share opportunities together with promoters, partners and investors, in a fair and sustainable way.
