Meiogenix has developed an innovative approach to common problems in agriculture, addressing key global food and industrial challenges. The company is applying gene and chromosome editing technologies to accelerate nature's generation of biodiversity through the mixing of parental genomes during plant reproduction. This helps expedite the lengthy process of plant varieties selection and also leads to increased biodiversity, lost during the systematic selection of crops for high yield and long shelf life. The ability to restore a plant's immunity to pests and diseases, and improve quality, taste and flavor in many crops also has the potential to revolutionize the AgriFood Tech sector. Key benefits of the platform include more access to natural food products for customers and less chemicals required in growing food.
