This agreement further aligns the interests of PLC and the NASA Community with the Colombian Government and is expected to expedite the growth of the fertilizer business segment. PLC will also be holding a webinar on July 6th at 4:30 pm ET to discuss ongoing commercialization efforts.
TORONTO, June 26, 2023 — Power Leaves Corp. (“PLC”), a manufacturer of decocainized coca leaf extract, announced that it has signed an agreement with the Colombian Agricultural Research Corporation (“Agrosavia”) and the NASA WALA Foundation (“NASA”).
Agrosavia is a non-profit entity belonging to the Colombian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development whose purpose is to carry out research and development of agricultural products and technology and generally promote technological innovation with the goal of supporting the agricultural sector in Colombia.
This partnership creates a strategic alliance between PLC, the NASA Community, and the Colombian Government with a focus on collaborative research, development, and product innovation associated with formulations from the coca leaf. Specifically, through this agreement, we will jointly develop additional uses and formulations for PLC’s fertilizer additives to support the agricultural industry in Colombia.
“Through our dialogue with the Colombian Government, they continue to show incredible support for the development of our fertilizer business, where there is the potential for the Colombian Government to be a purchaser of our fertilizer products,” said Pat McCutcheon, Co-Founder & CEO, Power Leaves Corp.
This agreement with Agrosavia, the leading representative entity for the Colombian Government in the agricultural industry, gives PLC greater proximity and credibility within Colombia. It will allow PLC to work hand in hand and contribute to current policy as well as streamline receipt of non-control permits to accelerate R&D efforts associated with the coca plant – from the development of low-alkaloid plant genetics to exploring different use cases for PLC’s fertilizer additives.
“By working hand in hand with the Colombian Government, we can more rapidly execute our various R&D efforts to expand our operations and scale our business in support of the Colombian economy and agricultural sector,” continued McCutcheon.
