Avoca, Inc. Signs Supply Agreement with Synthetic Genomics, Inc. to Become Domestic Source of Natural Astaxanthin
Jun 20 14
Avoca, Inc. has formed a supply agreement with Synthetic Genomics, Inc. to extract and commercialize natural astaxanthin from a strain of algae developed by SGI. The multi-year supply agreement also provides Avoca with exclusivity for product sales in North America. Pharmachem Laboratories will be responsible for marketing and sales. SGI is developing this product through their Genovia Bio business unit, which is responsible for the development and commercialization of algal-based food, chemical and fuel products. Financial details were not disclosed. Natural astaxanthin is a supplement with multiple clinically-proven health benefits associated with its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Natural astaxanthin is very difficult to produce and therefore supply constrained relative to demand. SGI has developed a process for production of natural astaxanthin from a phototrophic source and demonstrated commercial-scale manufacturing capability and performance over 18 months. SGI's natural astaxanthin has U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory approval for dietary supplement applications.
