“We have already demonstrated our strength in the dairy industry globally and will proceed with our focus. Upfront’s technology makes it possible for the right parties to create a new set of rules in the dairy industry. Our technology enables the production of highly valued ingredients to be produced more economically and in much larger scale than currently, any part of the world.”
