When Vishaal B. Bhuyan found himself with a seemingly insurmountable supply chain issue, he
never expected his journey would lead to a revolutionary new approach to food safety. With the
help of a synthetic biologist, they created traceable tags that not only allowed for better tracking but could also kill pathogens. But will this breakthrough technology be adopted?

Vishaal B. Bhuyan, CEO of Aanika Biosciences, explains the importance of food safety, the
potential that’s out there to enhance this safety, and more.

Key takeaways:

  1. Food safety is not only important for people, but it’s vital for businesses. Vishaal says it’s
    important for companies to have insurance to cover incidents like this. In fact, a
    company he knows lost 30% of its top line revenue from this.
  2. Aanika is creating cutting-edge technology to combat pathogens in food. They
    developed a probiotic microorganism that's been deactivated which contains a unique
    DNA sequence does things like addressing pathogen growth, killing pathogens, and
    many different secondary functions.
  3. The value between biology and insurance is incredibly valuable. Aanika’s insurance
    program converts this thing that many people don't understand–but need–into a
    digestible narrative around cost savings.
