Aplantex selected as an Effervescence finalist!

April 12, 2023

After a highly competitive pre-selection process, APLANTEX has been chosen as one of five finalists in the Biotech category for the 2023 edition of the pan-Canadian EFFERVESCENCE contest, an annual competition that showcases innovative projects to help accelerate the development of the life sciences and health technologies industry.

Aplantex’s green biotechnology is in the Effervescence limelight.

This selection further confirms the commercial interest of our unique production process for plant-based active ingredients with high added value, which are increasingly in demand in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and agrifood industries for the production of a wide range of products to improve health and well-being for people on every continent.

Our CEO, Patrick Charest, will be in charge of presenting a three-minute summary of the project to a jury of five expert judges at the 4th annual edition of this event, which will be held at the Bonsecours Market in Montreal’s Old Port on May 3 and 4. We confidently look forward to the announcement of the winning company to be chosen by these leading industry voices.
