BeeTechnology welcomes new lead investor
In a major development, BeeTechnology, an emerging player in the early-stage biotechnology sector, has secured Rio Baker, led by senior entrepreneur Victor Hugo Puchi, as its latest lead investor. This alliance aims to enhance BeeTechnology’s expertise and broaden its network, furthering its goals, particularly focused on tackling food waste, extending shelf life, and preserving nutritional value through pioneering biotech solutions. Camilo Bravo, CEO of BeeTechnology, stated that “the addition of Rio Baker not only provides us with significant commercial credibility, given his success story and established entrepreneurship in our target industry, but also furnishes a robust foundation for crafting our go-to-market strategy.”
BeeTechnology has pioneered a groundbreaking technology aimed at eradicating food-borne bacteria using an organic antimicrobial, preserving food’s natural properties and ensuring absolute safety for both humans and animals. This innovation not only prolongs food shelf life but also significantly reduces waste generation.
Founded by Camilo Bravo, Alejandro Olmos, and Stephanie Slebos, and now backed by Puchi, BeeTechnology has secured approval from the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG) for using its technology in animal feed. Moreover, the company is actively pursuing permits for human consumption.
Immediate objectives for BeeTechnology involve scaling up production for industrial trials and making an entry into the market in the short to medium term. Simultaneously, the company is navigating international regulatory pathways to access more lucrative markets.
The partnership between Rio Baker and the startup underscores the potential of sustainable biotech and emphasizes the role of seasoned entrepreneurs in supporting impactful ventures that benefit environmental sustainability and the future of food. As BeeTechnology charts its path with Rio Baker’s backing, it shines as a beacon of innovation in the biotech landscape.
