“We are excited to enter into this new business venture with KGBI, representing the second major milestone in the development of our turn-key digital plant cloning incubation systems,” said Gala Global CEO Timothy Madden.
“The next major accomplishment will be the completion of the manufacturing run of our first 100 units, with initial revenues expected to begin in January 2018. Based on our existing sales pipeline and our success in developing new innovations in cloning and plant breeding, we believe Gala Global is on the right track to be able to generate substantially greater revenues and earnings in the weeks and months ahead,” concluded Madden.
Gala Global Inc. subsidiary CEG Inc. is also collaborating with technology partner GenoBreeding Inc., on developing breeding tools such as molecular markers to enable productive plant breeding decisions and processes that achieve top-tier plant performance in a sustainable manner.
CEG’s state-of-the-art genomics technology enables GenoBreeding to digitally sequence the genomes of the most desirable plant varieties based on flavor and nutrition, so the desirable traits can be used to improve the most desirable commercial varieties with traits such as increased yield and quality, thus enhancing consumer demand for the product.
GenoBreeding is also developing a proprietary digital genetic database that will be used as an online cloud based library of digitally sequenced genomes and phenotypic (chemical composition) information on all existing and new plant varieties.
CEG Inc. proprietary digital plant cloning technology will enable GenoBreeding’s geneticists to select the best plant varieties to hybridize, improving and increasing crop quality and yields by combining the very best genetics, maximizing the variation of positive inherited characteristics in each variety.
