Ice Biotech Inc.

Mission Statement:
Our goal is to commercialize products derived from plants grown at low temperatures by enhancing the ability of plants to photosynthesize and process UV radiation in cold conditions.

About Us:
Incorporated in 1997 by a team of five leading Canadian agri-food academics and researchers, Ice Biotech specializes in the development of technologies that enhance the yields and sustainability of major crops in cold climates or growing conditions.

At Ice Biotech we specialize in isolating Anti-freeze proteins from winter cereals for use in frozen foods to improve quality and shelf life; creating fertilizers that improve freezing tolerance and winter survival in plants; producing transgenic plants by isolating genes and promoters that improve cold tolerance. We have also developed a UV sunscreen for the consumer market made from a natural extract plants use to manage and process UV radiation.

Markets Served:
Ice Biotech serves the Canadian marketplace from its brand new, state-of-the-art production facility in The Greater Hamilton Technology Enterprise Centre.

Looking For…
Private investors and strategic partners with expertise in the scaling of production and marketing.
