A comprehensive suite of organisms to effectively digest protein as part of an effective water recycling program.

researching PROTEIN

 We are in the early development phase of producing alternate synthesised proteins  which require a fraction of the land, feed and energy to produce.

data integration

Over the last 12 months we have been working closely with a number of geo-spatial data providers to integrate analytical plant and soil data so it can be viewed anywhere.

microbial delivery

New and innovative ways of delivering the functional microbes used in food production systems are being developed all the time and we are at the cutting edge of this field.


Metabolic profiles of our functional biology have application in a plethora of processes from energy production to waste digestion.

Analytical services

A full suite of Soil, Sap, Dry Tissue, Chemical Residue, Heavy Metal, Food Safety and pathology services in our NATA Labs.
