We believe in new ways to do and conduct business, driving practices that are not only sustainable and innovative, but also thoughtful, ethical, and based on shared values.
Through biotechnology, we are committed to contributing to the New Economy, creating alternatives to replace traditional, non-sustainable inputs and processes, and fostering perpetuity and long-term profitability in the agricultural, food, personal care, hygiene, and pharmaceutical industries.
WHAT MOVES APOENA AND GIVES A MEANING TO OUR JOURNEY IS BIOTECHNOLOGY.
MESSAGE FROM OUR OPERATIONS DIRECTOR
Apoena Biotech was born from a question posed by customers: “is this a natural product?” However, regardless of a product being categorized as natural due to its origin, there is an additional question we should ask: “is this product sustainable?”
The fact is that not all products from natural sources are necessarily sustainable.
Apoena Biotech was created to address such pain points. We are dedicated to acting on these points.
Until when will a so-called “natural” product be accepted without any environmental concerns? Our purpose is to use the environment in our favor, with the environment occupying center stage. This way, we advance our mission to make biotechnology affordable to anyone and everyone.
Make biotechnology benefits available to everyone, contributing to improving people’s life through responsible production of innovative, sustainable, safe, and effective biotechnology-based ingredients aimed at the agricultural, food, beauty, personal care, hygiene, cleaning, and pharmaceutical industries.
To set the benchmark for bioprocessing - in Brazil and abroad - based on our commitment to life and responsible business practices, with a view to creating a healthy and propitious world, generating, and sharing value within our whole ecosystem.
