There was quite a bit of buzz when the idea of gene edited crops first became public. But what can this technology mean to agriculture? The idea of a precise way to turn genes on and off in plants opens the door to a wide range of innovations, but how long will it take to come to market? How about 2023?

Pairwise, a startup focused in gene editing technology, is seeing success with the tool in the development of greens with a higher nutrition profile. This is a niche that offers produce farmers the opportunity to create an even healthier product, an issue of growing interest to consumers.

Haven Baker, chief business officer, Pairwise, recently discussed the creation of Conscious Greens, it’s first product and the convergence of food production and technology. His insights paint a positive picture of a new technology that’s just starting to show promise. This is the first product from a company called Conscious Foods. Give it a listen.
