Biology meets tech
Imagine ordering fresh, ethically sourced seeds and receiving stale, contaminated products instead.
This happened to Aanika co-founder Vishaal Bhyuan, who discovered that the costly, wasteful experience of destroying sub-standard goods is worryingly common.
Could this problem be solved by applying some sort of identifier that would authenticate and trace products through supply chains?
Enter molecular biologist Dr. Ellen Jorgensen, who partnered with Vishaal to create Aanika.
Together they have figured out how microbial-based technology can be used to trace and authenticate products as they move through supply chains - solving Vishaal’s original problem.
Now the expanded Aanika team is bringing this biotechnology to market, so that companies around the world can reduce waste and bring more integrity and efficiency to their supply chains.
