As FA Bio head into the new year of 2022, we start with a growing team of expert scientists and a renewed passion and drive to identify sustainable farming solutions.
At FA Bio we have a pioneering team of scientists who carry out skilled genomic, microbiological and glasshouse experiments. They utilise our innovative technology in their study of soil microbes to develop agricultural bioproducts that can help minimise agriculture’s environmental impact.
Following a seed investment round in 2021 we announced that we were focused on growing the company to deliver our mission. That is what we have done, with the addition of three microbiologists to the team. So, as we start a new year, we’d like to introduce you to the latest and long-standing, members of the team at FA Bio who are committed to identifying agricultural bioproducts to help feed the world.
