ZeaChem and Pure Cultures announce Product Development and Supply MoU

The Memo of Understanding will accelerate the development of Pure Cultures' direct fed microbials

ZeaChem Inc., a biorefinery developer, has announced a Product Development and Supply Memorandum of Understanding with Pure Cultures, a producer of high-quality probiotic products. The agreement will accelerate the product development of Pure Cultures' direct fed microbials (DFM). The companies intend to cooperatively validate pilot, demonstration and production processes at ZeaChem's facility in Boardman, Oregon and Pure Cultures' facility in Denver, CO with the intent of defining production protocols and product specifications. While validation work is ongoing, ZeaChem and Pure Cultures will also develop a Supply Agreement, contingent upon successful completion of the validation work, for the contract manufacturing of direct fed microbials at ZeaChem's facilities in Boardman, Oregon.

"ZeaChem has deep fermentation experience in the production of organic acid products as well as significant scale up and bio-industrial operations," said Tim Eggeman, president and CEO of ZeaChem. "Working with Pure Cultures to scale their DFM production processes is a natural fit with our core expertise and existing biorefinery assets."

"Use of DFMs helps remove the necessity of antibiotics from the food chain," said Steve Kazemi, president and CEO of Pure Cultures. "This in turn enables growers to better respond to increasing retail food demands. Working with ZeaChem will enable us to scale and go to market much faster than we would otherwise be able to."
