Envance Technologies Signs Global Joint Development And License Agreement With The Procter & Gamble Company


Companies to develop and commercialize innovative family-safe pest control solutions

Envance Technologies, an emerging leader in the development of safe and effective insect control technology solutions, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an exclusive global Joint Development and License Agreement (“Agreement”) with The Procter & Gamble Company (“P&G”).

Under the agreement, Envance will work with P&G’s P&G Ventures group to develop a range of new insect control solutions that leverage Envance’s bio-science formulas designed to quickly kill and control insects by targeting nervous system receptors only active in bugs.

“P&G Ventures is the ideal partner for Envance in the consumer pest control market,” said Shayne M. Wetherall, Chief Executive Officer of Envance. “In addition to their proven consumer product knowledge and go-to-market capabilities, P&G shares Envance’s vision for category innovation to address the rising global demand for insect control solutions that provide outstanding efficacy and family safety. We look forward to collaborating with P&G Ventures to develop a compelling range of household pest control product solutions.”

Envance’s instant action spray formulas have been commercialized under the ZEVO™ brand.  The first ZEVOTM products using the Envance formulas are being sold on www.zevoinsect.com.

“Envance’s insect control technologies are an important innovation in the ability to control insects without having to use traditional insecticides.  We believe these formulas will help Zevo™ solve the rising consumer need to be able to control insects with products that are safe and effective around people and pets,” said Patrick Kraus, Brand Director, P&G Ventures.

P&G Ventures is a disruptive growth organization within P&G designed to explore, create and incubate life-changing brands and businesses in product categories where P&G does not provide solutions today.  This strategic relationship between P&G Ventures and Envance will leverage Envance’s proven technology and product development capabilities in combination with P&G’s world-class brand building, sales, and global reach to deliver products that eliminate insects with no harm to people or pets.
