February 23, 2022

Chinova Bioworks, a Canadian company that addresses the growing consumer demand for healthy, natural, clean-label ingredients, is pleased to announce that Sustainable Development Technology Canada (“SDTC”) has approved a $1.5M contribution to their expansion project.

Chinova Bioworks co-founders Dhayagude and Brown met at an entrepreneurship accelerator and incubator and found a common interest in the science of mushrooms, reducing food waste and sustainable solutions for clean-label ingredients.
