An award winning company
FuturaGene’s innovative yield enhancement platform has been widely recognised by the plantation forestry industry. Our strong commitment to the creation of technologies for sustainable plantations and practices has led to the Company winning prestigious accolades:
Brazilian Pulp and Paper Technical Association (ABTCP) Award for Innovation 2015
