CovationBio and Primient Host Event Demonstrating Environmental Benefits of Working with Truterra to Enable Regenerative Farming

The event demonstrates how responsibly grown plant-based ingredients are creating positive impacts across a variety of commercial industries

Covation Biomaterials LLC ("CovationBio") and Primienthave joined forces with Truterra, LLC ("Truterra") to highlight how regenerative agriculture—specifically, farmed corn—is helping to reduce the environmental impact of a host of industries including fashion, homegoods, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and more. The hands-on field day took place in the heart of America's Corn Belt in Dow City, Iowa, and was hosted by CovationBio CEO Dr. Michael Saltzberg, Primient Chief Sales Officer Chris Guild, Truterra President Tom Ryan, and Kelly Garrett, a local farmer at Garrett Land & Cattle and Co-founder of Together, they welcomed representatives of companies, distributors, and industry associations who are now looking to use corn-based materials as a more sustainable alternative to traditional fossil fuel-based options.

"This is the first time we've had the chance to gather our value chain partners where our bio-based production begins—literally in a corn field," says Saltzberg. "We wanted everyone to experience the win-win that we are creating by helping to replace fossil fuel-based materials with a plant-based alternative that is not only a renewable resource, but that also is being produced in a way that helps capture carbon from the atmosphere. That type of circularity is an excellent example of how we are doing our part to fight climate change."
