Values of Biolan

Biolan emphasizes lasting values and ecology in all its activities. Product development is a continuing process and quality assurance is systematic.


“By thinking about the well-being of our personnel and using our know-how wisely, we successfully develop, manufacture, and focusing on the customer needs, market profitably high-quality products for cultivation and for the environment, which reduce the environmental load caused by mankind.”


Leader in sustainable development


Our activities are sustainable. We operate in an environmentally and ethically acceptable manner in our own business area. We minimise and measure the key environmental impacts of our activities. When it comes to our stakeholders, we apply the same principle as in our own operations.




The profitability of our business activities ensures the continuity of our operations and enables the company values of Biolan Oy to be respected. We operate in the long term. In the family enterprise, the quartile is 25 years rather than three months. In our economic planning, we apply longer-term incentives, such as the overall life cycle impact of the product.




We are at the forefront of evolution in all our key business areas. We anticipate changes and react to them in a creative and agile way. We improve our activities continuously. Our product development creates new solutions and approaches unbiased and boldly. We ensure that the level of our staff's skills is maintained and improved


Customer and consumer orientation


The customers and consumers pay our wages. We in cooperation with our customers want to assist the consumers to make decision that are truly sustainable. We will keep the promise that we have made to our customers and to the consumers.




Biolan wants to combine the practice of good leadership with the realities of the business world. Fairness does not mean forcing everyone on the same level. Each employee is rewarded by their individual performance, competence and skills.

Product development and production 

Product development


Our product development department tests and improves our products continually and develops new products based on needs of the customers. All raw materials, intermediate products and finalized products are analysed in the laboratory and test-grown in our greenhouse.




Within the scope of its environmental business area, the Biolan Group receives different effluents from agriculture and industry. Their nutrient content and energy is recycled for reuse. In this way the need for utilising virgin nutrient and energy sources is reduced.


Production and products


The items intended for domestic consumption are mainly manufactured in the production plant in Eura. Some of the products in the environmental product range are subcontracted from other companies in the group. All the products based on manure raw materials, the fertilizers and the growing media, are produced in the company's own plant in Eura. The plant operates in three shifts, five days a week. The products are delivered either from the plant warehouse or via regional warehouses directly to retailers using contract carriers.


The Estonian subsidiary Biolan-Baltic Oü, which processes peat products, supplements the export activities of Biolan. Its entire production volume is exported all over the world. About 60 % of the export volume is delivered directly from Estonia, whereas about 40% comes from Finland. 


Product range


Biolan offers a wide variety of high-quality products. At present, the product range comprises about 100 different sales items. These are divided into several product groups:

  • Organic fertilizers for gardening and professional farming 
  • Substrates for gardening  
  • Substrates for professional greenhouse farming  
  • Organic potting soil products for indoor plants  
  • Organic nutrients and conditioners for indoor flowers  
  • Composters and composting products  
  • Dry toilets with accessories 
  • Equipment for wastewater treatment 


Sales and marketing of the products
