We believe a healthy, sustainable food system is rooted in diversity and choice. A variety of crops and flavors, Optimized for different growing systems, Through a community of innovators passionate about sustainable food production. Over 99% of the calories consumed globally are derived from less than 1% of the natural genetic diversity of plants. That’s a lot of diversity for food ingredients left on the table, or really never making it TO the table. Turns out, Nature is an incredibly generous and under-utilized source of diversity – genetic diversity – that can be a powerful differentiator to develop more healthy and sustainable food choices. Empowering that differentiation is what we are all about.
True collaboration will empower more innovators. We know that building a more robust food system will take a community of innovators – companies and institutions of all sizes, throughout the food and agriculture supply chain – empowered with the most advanced data analytics and genomics tools available. So, we assembled a passionate team of experts to build a revolutionary community-based crop design platform we call CropOS™ (short for Crop Operating System) to tap the vast natural genetic diversity of plants and open a new era of innovation to modernize our food system. We work closely with our partners to apply design thinking to deliver differentiated products that create more choices and benefits for farmers and consumers alike. Our partners can remain focused on their core business while delivering better products to market faster and for less cost. It’s time we use fresh approaches and collaboration to unlock Nature’s potential and develop more great tasting, healthy and sustainable food choices for all of us. Partner with us
