Because our company’s main lab is located in Saskatchewan, we are very fortunate to be members of Ag-West Bio, an organization that specializes in developing the life sciences industry in the province. Ag-West Bio is a not-for-profit, member-based organization that helps foster connections and education, especially through events like Canada’s National Biotechnology Week, which successfully concluded last month.
Ag-West Bio recently released their Annual Report, which is publicly available right here, and they featured Okanagan Specialty Fruits in one of two company profiles (pages 14 & 15). The profile, titled “Science interacts with social media”, explores the science behind our nonbrowning Arctic® apples, the challenging road to market for a biotech crop and our commitment to education and communication, including our emphasis on connecting with consumers via social media.
