We were thrilled that our cold plasma seed health treatment technology was awarded the "Manufacturing Innovation Award" at Made in the Midlands! We were up against some amazing companies with incredible technologies, but in the end, we triumphed.
The judges said "Using only electricity and air Zayndu's innovations have boosted yields among its indoor farming customers by a fifth, without using more energy. Simple, cost effective, efficient – this is what innovation in manufacturing is all about." We could not have said it better ourselves!
The award was presented by Rohit Moudgil , Head of Manufacturing and Industrial Sector, HSBC plc. Receiving the award, CEO Ralph Weir said "This is fantastic recognition for Zayndu's plasma seed health treatment system. We're working hard to improve crop yields and protect our food supply chain against a challenging environment with reduced water, climate change and pathogens which are forever adapting. When we founded Zayndu, we took some amazing technology from Loughborough University, and built an incredible team around it; they developed the seed treatment protocols and the plasma control and containment systems to make this possible - and we're now delivering amazing products globally. I could not be more proud of the team's achievements - this award is for them."
