Posted by on December 19th, 2016 | 0 Comments »


More than 40 countries are on the cusp of building completely new bio-innovation economies that supply food, create jobs, reduce waste and improve health. Bio-innovation is the invention, development, production and use of biological products and processes, often harnessing the power of microorganisms and enzymes that naturally improve processes across many business sectors, including agriculture, feed, fiber and fuel.

smart regulations that encourage advanced scientific development and government’s help communicating the value of such innovation to the wider society and consumer base.
