SAN Group is a multinational corporation. We offer goods and services to our customers and manage investments on five continents. Driven by contributing to the development of a better tomorrow, we invest in what we understand and have a passion for: animal health, crop protection and nutrition, food safety, real estate development, as well as green energies. This passion is not only our “burning wick in the candle” but it’s also the driver behind our growth and success.

The operations and investments of SAN Group stand firm on three legs: SAN Vet (animal health), SAN Agrow (crop protection & nutrition), and SAN Venture (real estate development and future business).


Global Business Unit

SAN Vet is dedicated to healthy life stock farming. This is achieved though biosecurity, vet diagnostic, vaccines and - as a last resort - veterinary pharmaceuticals. All goes hand in hand with premium customer consulting and service. Through in-house R+D facilities as well as partnerships with external institutions and universities, SAN Vet is continuously expanding and securing the quality of its portfolio.


Global Business Unit
SAN Agrow

SAN Agrow contributes to sustainable agriculture through biotechnological crop protection (biopesticides, biofungicides, bioherbicides), nutrients, and biostimulants. Through in-house R+D and field trials, we gain new insights in the areas of microbial biocontrol agents, microbial fermentations, plant extracts, as well as plant nutrition to create new products and expanding our portfolio for the conventional and organic horticultural industry.


Global Business Unit
SAN Venture

SAN Venture comprises the business fields SAN Enertech (green energies and future farming), SAN Real (development and management of real estate projects), DER FÖRTHOF winery as well as our DER FÖRTHOF hotel project. This business unit subsumes smaller local ventures and acts as an incubator for future business. 



At SAN Pacific we invest in what we understand and have a passion for. This holds true for biotechnology, real estate, green energy, and human education. Current projects include future foods as a contribution to secure global nutrition (e.g., vegan meat and instant noodles from plant proteins), green hydrogen production powered by solar energy, or real estate projects based on circular economy in terms of used resources.
