Heal the world. Fuel the world. Feed the World.

Biotechnology (manufacturing technology and products based on biology) help improve our lives and the health of our planet.

  • Biological processes — some used more than 6,000 years — gave us food products, such as bread and cheese. Today: Biotech gives us new healthcare products and biofuels from renewable biomass to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and farmers use agricultural biotech to increase yields, prevent damage from insects and pests and reduce farming's impact on the environment.

  • Improving on operational efficiencies
  • Producing more — for themselves and customers
  • Growing their businesses and their bottom line
  • Connecting with customers, suppliers, other resources
  • Employing manufacturing solutions for all links in the supply chain
  • Achieving — and documenting — the highest degree of food safety compliance
