This project will highlight the sustainability credentials and advantages of BioHarvest’s BioFarming technology.

BioHarvest Sciences Inc. (CSE: BHSC) (“BioHarvest” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into a partnership with BOLDT AG, an international business strategy and communications consultancy based in Europe, and Summit Strategy Group LLC, a U.S.-based communications firm, to develop BioHarvest’s global sustainability strategy and ESG reporting framework. Both firms have deep experience working with purpose-driven companies in building long-term societal impact coupled with business value.


BioHarvest’s sustainable BioFarming technology enables the Company to grow plant cells at industrial scale in liquid bioreactors in order to produce the health benefits of specific plants without having to grow the entire plant. In the case of producing cannabinoids, the technology is estimated to use less than 5% of the land required for conventional cannabis farming allowing for significantly reduced energy, water use and emissions. In addition, in the case of its Superfruit Nutraceutical business, one BioHarvest patented bioreactor produces the equivalent amount of piceid resveratrol that 471 acres (190.6 hectares) of land would require using conventional methods.

The project with BOLDT and Summit Strategy Group will document the sustainability credentials of the technology, develop goals for continuous improvement and result in a comprehensive Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) report.

The global trends within health and wellness, biotech, foodtech and sustainability all come together to create the momentum for BioHarvest’s growth prospects. That is why we are so excited to embark on this very important project. At BioHarvest we believe it is our responsibility to make a fundamental positive impact on the world and I believe our customers and investor partners will applaud our efforts. We will continue to seize the opportunity to drive human utility value coupled with shareholder value by pursuing ambitious sustainability goals across our business” said Ilan Sobel, CEO of BioHarvest.

BioHarvest is well-positioned to become a leader in plant-based nutraceuticals and biotech. The combination of the clinically proven benefits to human health of their products and their breakthrough production technology means that they have great potential to make an impact in a number of industries. Kristin Karlstad, a Partner at BOLDT, has worked with numerous greentech companies to develop their sustainability strategies and will lead the work for BioHarvest together with our partners in the U.S., Summit Strategy Group” said Jeremy Galbraith, Managing Partner, BOLDT.

BioHarvest has demonstrated incredible foresight and leadership in actively looking to build a sustainability program focused on both their own operations and on how the products produced will help their customers as well. We are very excited to have been chosen to help them through this process” said Derek Young, Managing Director, ESG & Stakeholder Engagement, Summit Strategy Group.
