Agrivida is a company that operates in the agricultural biotechnology industry to create materials for biofuel and biomass energy solutions. The company was founded by Jeremy Schley Johnson, and R. Michael Raab, in 2002, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States.
Utilizing corn as their biomass-base, Agrivida is able to develop corn varieties that are optimized for producing ethanol, as well as crops for consumption purposes. Their solutions and developments allow them to commercialize new generations of enzyme solutions that can feed livestock and at the same time, reduce negative environmental impacts.
Their product, GRAINZYME, is a technology platform that grows enzymes, that would usually be produced outside the food chain, inside each kernel of corn without fermentation. GRANZYME Phytase, NSP and other crops can be grown using their process of introducing the enzymes into the corn at a rate of a few pounds per ton. Introducing these enzymes allows the corn to provide the consumer with a better dietary performance.
