Pharm2Farm designs and manufactures coated nanoparticles using patented technologies. The business has spun out of Nottingham Trent University and is utilising its technology in a number of fields including medical, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, horticulture and agriculture. The business undertakes commercial research and is engaged with consortia on grant funded projects.
Initial commercial focus is on horticulture and maximising the increased bioavailability of trace minerals such as iron, silica and zinc, the absence of antagonistic effects between these nutrients in plant and animal nutrition and the opportunities for naturally fortified produce. This technology is highly suited to face the challenges of modern food production for a growing global population working closely with innovative technologies such as vertical farming.
