BERKELEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MeliBio, Inc. a food biotechnology company using proprietary technology to disrupt the unsustainable $9 billion global honey industry was selected for a prestigious special mention list of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2021.
MeliBio’s honey without bees is the world’s first real honey that is bioidentical to the ones bees make, just produced without using honeybee as a medium of production. By using science to make honey without bees, MeliBio is supporting restoring damaged bee biodiversity that is important for keeping our planet alive.
Darko Mandich, CEO & Co-Founder of MeliBio said: “We are thrilled to see our invention landing TIME’s Special Mention List for Best Inventions of 2021. This shows that the World is finally ready to hear the whole and the true story of how the honey industry is making it impossible for 20,000 wild and native bee species to thrive. The number of beehives containing invasive and predatorial honeybees is unsustainable and finding ways to make honey without bees is going to reduce the pressure on our bees biodiversity. This amazing recognition is also a reflection of our enthusiastic and dedicated team that is working hard on advancing our science and technology so that we can create a future that is better for humans, and better for bees.”
MeliBio is preparing for an official foodservice and B2B market launch in early 2021, while conducting pre-launch activities with partnering restaurants in New York City.
