After spending their first careers at leading international corporations, our founders desired to use their cleantech knowledge and experience to develop new solutions to improve the health of people and planet with next-generation cleantech solutions that did not harm humans or the environment. It was time to use their expertise to make an impact.
Not too long after developing the first products, it was soon obvious that different industries and applications would need different solutions. These other solutions came fast and furious and soon they were developing solutions and a network of like-minded friends and colleagues to develop the business. The business soon expanded to development initiatives in many countries around the world. They would become immersed with consultants, universities, labs, and governments on the journey to get his solutions studied, tested, approved and licensed.
What they built is a global organization as a research and development nexus, a global incubator, for a new breed of next-generation cleantech solutions for multiple industries. To properly commercialize these next-generation solutions would require a different market approach.
To build a successful global business utilizing these products, teams would need to be built around industry verticals to build and attract the talent and resources needed to grow. In early 2019 a new initiative was created to build new industry-centric companies to be industry focused and encapsulate the intellectual property, teams, and business for a given industry.
One of the leading industry verticals with great solutions and global potential is agriculture. With the world seeking solutions to the unclean legacy methods of growing and supplying our food, the timing was right. The result is Katana AgriScience Corp, a new company carrying on the legacy of this people and planet safe cleantech innovation history with a goal of enabling a new crop production and supply paradigm.
And so we join in the common global goal:
Abundant, clean, fresh, healthy food produced safely and sustainably.

Individually we are one drop. Together we are an ocean. - Ryunosuke Satoro
