Creating new opportunities in food

We’re working with industry leaders across the agriculture supply chain — from CPG to ingredients —to create a more adaptable food system.

Our focus is on improving sustainability, enhancing nutrition, and improving the flavor and texture of food.

Produce in crate

Sustainability

  • Improve plant architecture to extend shelf life and reduce waste
  • Expand optimal growing conditions to enable climate resilience
  • Strengthen disease resistance to reduce chemical use
Heirloom tomatoes

Nutrition

  • Increase phytonutrients to create functional foods
  • Increase fiber content to improve heart health benefits
  • Increase protein content to improve nutrition
Potatoes

Appearance

  • Reduce browning to increase shelf life
  • Improve colors to align with consumer preference
  • Neutralize coloring to reduce processing and additives
Peas

Flavor

  • Reduce unpleasant flavors to improve taste of alternative protein sources
  • Increase natural sweetness to reduce added sugars
  • Expand flavor options to make nutritious food more pleasing
  • The ability to adjust the expression of genes with a non-transgenic platform in months is a breakthrough that can help us to develop new products in a safe and sustainable way.
