The BioTech Startup With The Perfect Recipe For Grilling Food Fraudsters

An Ex-Wall Street Trader Is Taking The Long Position On Food Security Using Biotechnology

Vishaal’s Bug Problem

“Up to 10% of all food goods worldwide are adulterated.’’

Through his continued curiosity of biotechnology, Vishaal met his future CSO, Dr. Ellen Jorgensen, founder of the world’s first community biology lab known as GenSpace. It was in this dynamic environment that Carverr was incepted. He saw DNA as a way to safely and reliably track and trace food products. That’s when he presented the idea to Ellen, and together they founded Carverr and joined RebelBio, SOSV’s London based pre-seed venture capital program.

“One-day bio-sensors might even be grown into food to trigger GPS signals that alert for contaminated food such as e.coli outbreaks” — Vishaal Bhuyan, CEO of Carverr

One thing is for certain, Carverr will take us from the inadequate technologies of barcodes and RFID tags on food packaging to a seamlessly integrated bio-tracking system.
