Green cleaning products merger

Too bad I won't be able to attend the 1st ICIS European Surfactants conference this month as Belgium-based Ecover is one of the presenter in the conference. But I'm betting that there will be questions coming up about the company's recent acquisition of US green cleaning product company Method.

Oh well, I guess I will have to wait for Neil Burns, the co-producer of the Surfactants conference, to give us an update coming from the conference.

According to Ecover, both companies are deeply rooted in the use of plant-based ingredients. Ecover and Method will continue as separate brands but combined, will create "the world's most dynamic and visionary green cleaning company," said Ecover CEO Philip Malmberg.

The companies collectively have sales of $200m and a combined staff of 300.
