Equinom

Equinom was founded in 2012 by Gil Shalev who realized that by utilizing genomic sequencing breakthroughs, he could develop a technology that would revolutionize seed and legume design, enabling AgTech to achieve unprecedented goals: to breed new, highly strategic varieties in a fraction of the time with newfound accuracy. The company has developed high-yield, shatter-resistant sesame, and has become the world’s largest provider – with farms in the USA, Australia and Europe. Concurrently, Equinom is breeding super trait plant protein – sustainable, reliable and healthy legumes for alternative proteins.
