Inari, A Plant Breeding Technology Company, Introduces Mission to Transform Agriculture
CAMBRIDGE, Mass: Inari, a Flagship Pioneering company headquartered in Cambridge, launches a transformational plant breeding technology company. Inari began in early 2016 and has since recruited more than 80 leading research scientists and academic advisors from a range of diverse horizons, from plant biology to medical research.
Inari aims to substantially reduce plant breeding time and cost. Its unique combination of biological and data sciences provides its scientists and plant breeding partners unprecedented capabilities in developing new varieties adapted for local environments with greater precision and efficiency.
This approach aims to significantly reduce the land, water and other inputs required for producing food and feed.
Inari is led by CEO Ponsi Trivisvavet, formerly an executive with Flagship start-up Indigo. Trivisvavet said, "I am thrilled to be working with exceptional people at Inari focusing on transforming plant breeding technologies and applying them to address innovation challenges. Our scientists have a great breadth and depth of genomics, biology, agronomy and data science knowledge. The partnerships and collaborations we are building will allow us to reach many growers and respond quickly to their challenges as well as to consumer demand for healthier and more nutritious food. Over the coming months our priority is to accelerate the deployment of our technologies into crops while increasing our cutting-edge technology and patent pool. Our future is going to be exciting - we look forward to empowering our partners and growers by giving them more choice and access to our technologies."
