Since 1995, NOVADI has become become the world’s exclusive variety manager of scab-resistant apple varieties bred by INRAE. 
Besides, for more than 20 years, INRAE and NOVADI have jointly run the varietal creation program, still based on the selection of resistant apple varieties. 
NOVADI is a group of 16 French nurserymen producing fruit trees for professionnal growers and and in particular almost all apple trees certified by the French Ministry of Agriculture.

Most of them are also involved in CEP INNOVATION, another company whose activities are the breeding and management of varieties and rootstock of other fruit species (pear, apricot, peach, cherry, almond, plum, door Pyrus graft, Malus rootstock).
