Social, environmental and economic influences and evolving consumer trends are recasting “fads” as “the future,” thus sparking radical transformation in the global food industry. Plant-based foods are dominating the scene, enticing modern-day consumers whose strong ethics greatly influence purchasing decisions.
With a passion for creating healthier function-rich, non-GMO foods with consumer needs at heart, Equinom is redesigning plant-based foods at the source – the seed. We are reviving characteristics that were lost to industrial breeding, alluring consumers with foods’ true potential. We also design and tailor solutions to the food industry, inside out.
The Product Profiler lets food companies select their grain of choice from an extensive bank of traits, matching the distinct nutritional profile, composition and functional characteristics they require.
Our labs analyze existing and breeding seeds to determine their specific traits, parameters that help industry players evaluate seed potential.
Equinom delivers strategic advantage to the food industry by assessing and predicting the potential value of individual grains based on their characteristics.
Creating the perfect tahini is a tricky combination of “science and art,” Hickey explains, which is what led Sabra to Equinom, a seed breeding company based in Israel.
