BioNovelus’ CR-10 Blooms from Innovation to Market

Phoenix, Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- / FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — After months of trials conducted in partnership with several companies in the crop protection, post-harvest, and food security spaces, BioNovelus (ONOV) is delighted to announce the beginning of the commercialization of its eco-friendly, Biofungicide CR-10.

Quantities of CR-10 have been sold to Agrinco for distribution in Guatemala. “This is a huge step for BioNovelus,” says Jean Ekobo, President and CEO of BioNovelus, Inc. “Just a few months ago we were still working on finding corporations forward-thinking enough to test this innovative product in their fields as well as processing and packing centers. We have come a long way from being a bold and inspiring new innovation straight out of the lab to now launching this product into the market.”

Not only that, but we received good feedback from end-users.  Says Ekobo, “Our testing partners have let us know that some samples of fruits and vegetables treated with CR-10 have already been shipped, delivered, and sold in the US, and that the American food markets and grocery stores were very satisfied with the upgrade in quality of these fruits and vegetables. We know that if the customers of our customers are happy, we have a winner!”
