The job posting highlights the most critical responsibilities and requirements of the job. It's not all-inclusive. Some more about Demetrix: Nature is a rich source of ingredients. Inconsistent quality and supply, along with inaccessibility of rare substances, mean it's not always an ideal source to meet the world's needs. Demetrix helps customers across the globe produce more for less. Biotechnology can help by enabling access to more rare and powerful products. With less environmental impact and less cost than traditional methods. Which can lead to more happy, healthy lives. Demetrix gives you: Expensive and hard-to-find ingredients at your fingertips, sustainably and affordably High ingredient purity without residual chemicals or pesticides Affordable access that is quickly scalable as your business grows Product consistency and a reliable, global supply A sustainable solution with a small environmental footprint Currently, we're building a product pipeline of cannabinoids, the active compounds in the cannabis plant. Humans have been relying on cannabinoids for health and medicinal purposes for centuries. Although there are more than 113 unique cannabinoids, very few have been studied. That's because they are present in such low quantities in the plant. We can produce even the rarest cannabinoids at high purity and volumes. What this will do is enable research for health benefits and, ultimately, provide affordable access to the compounds.
