Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc., the leading developer of spider silk based fibres, is working in collaboration with a local cooperative in Quang Nam province, to expand mulberry production.
Expanding mulberry production in Quang Nam, by nearly 2,500 acres, is a powerful step to increasing total silk production and a key component of the company's plan to bring its spider silk technology to market.
"Collaboration with local farmers and workers, leveraging their expertise and knowledge, is core to our production scale up efforts," said Jon Rice COO. "This effort highlights the complementary efforts that we are taking, in combination with the leadership in Quang Nam, to restore their traditional sericulture industry by blending in new high technology agriculture. This continued collaboration will play a key part in the exciting growth potential we're seeing with our expansion in Vietnam and the market for affordable spider silk materials."
