IP-Focused Agtech Company is Unlocking the Future for Grains, Pulses, and Root Vegetables

AgriForce, a British Columbia-headquartered company specializing in commercializing IP-driven breakthroughs that redefine nutrition and taste, is taking the sprouted grains market to the next level.

Wheat accounts for 20 percent of the world’s caloric intake, with the flour and bakery products market valued at $200 billion in the U.S. alone. However, many wheat-based products lack nutrition and protein and are high in carbs. Science shows that sprouted grains are more nutritious. Using a highly precise, proprietary sprouting process (which has been in development for 10 years), AgriForce is able to increase the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals, and shift the total amount of fiber in whole grains to aid digestion and gut health.


Under the subsidiary brand un(Think) Foods, the company leverages natural science to create flour-based products such as breads, pastas, and pancake mixes with superior nutrition, taste, texture, and quality.


To ensure its supply of quality grains, the company has forged strategic partnerships with local non-GMO suppliers and specialty milling partners, and has secured a patent from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office for the design of its growing facility. The AgriForce GrowHouse is an environmentally controlled and clean method of growing high-value crops by harnessing the power of the sun and hydroponics, without the use of pesticides, fungicides, or irradiation, to achieve optimal crop yields that are as close to their full genetic potential as possible.
