A brighter future for food starts now.

Food is an integral part of our culture and our well-being. But as our population grows, the demand for food increases, as well as the demand on our earth. At the same time, obesity rates, food-related health issues and allergies are on the rise. At Calyxt, we have the opportunity – and the ethical responsibility – to address these issues head on, making the food you love healthier, sustainable and completely traceable from concept to fork.

Calyxt is located in the heart of the U.S., right outside Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our team is comprised of some of the best and brightest minds in the industry, who together are working to make food healthier, not only for this generation, but for generations to come.

OUR MISSION

To make the food you love a healthier choice.

Healthier food means healthier people and a happier earth. We’re doing what farmers have done for hundreds of years: choosing the best crops and breeding them to make better, stronger, higher yielding plants.

The Calyxt difference: We work with plants at the molecular level – to be as efficient and precise as possible. We remove the unhealthy parts and boost the nutritional benefits that already exist, simply and naturally, with no added chemicals or foreign substances. We’re elevating food to make it more functional and healthier for us all.

We trace every step on this journey to ensure that each crop is grown in a conscious, sustainable way. And we focus on our partnerships with farmers to provide better premiums and a more transparent path between the food they grow and the consumers who eat it.

The future of farming starts here

As a small, Midwest company, we’re dedicated to our partners and the prosperity of their businesses. Through our cutting-edge breeding techniques, our crops are healthier and stronger, giving growers a premium advantage for higher profits.

Improving the food industry one ingredient at a time

From restaurants to consumer-packaged goods, our ingredients match today’s in-demand health profiles with superior performance and taste.
