Evogene announces first deal with multinational food company

March 18, 2015 |

In Israel, Evogene announced its first collaboration agreement with a multinational food company. The focus of the multi-year collaboration is to improve productivity of a key crop underlying one of the consumer company’s leading branded product lines through advanced breeding methods.

The agreement leverages Evogene’s decade-long experience, data base and know-how for yield improvement and advanced breeding methods. Under the agreement, Evogene will utilize its proprietary computational and plant validation platforms to develop improved pre-breeding varieties of the target crop. Proof of concept validation activities will be conducted in both model plants and the target crop, which represents a new addition to Evogene’s growing crop improvement portfolio.
