Making nature accessible and affordable for a growing society.It is estimated that the world’s population will increase by more than 35% by 2050, reaching 9 billion people. Crop production will need to more than double in order to feed these people and meet the consumer needs of a developing world. With very little land remaining for agricultural expansion, they as a society need to find ways to maximize the use of their world’s resources. Plants produce a variety of rare natural products which are used in their daily lives as flavors, fragrances, food ingredients, cosmetics, vitamins, pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals. They strive to reduce their dependence on land- and resource-intensive practices by recreating natural processes through biotechnology.
