MONTREAL — Dr. John B. Elstrott, a high-profile entrepreneur and professor in the natural foods and venture capital sectors, will join Inocucor Technologies Inc. as an advisor in the areas of sustainability and environmental science.
Aside from his new role with Inocucor, Elstrott currently holds an impressive list of titles, such as chairman and director of Whole Foods Market and co-founder and chairman of MicroBiome Therapeutics, LLC — maker of novel non-prescription therapies for both the prevention and early treatment of type 2 diabetes by interacting with the human microbiome. Elstrott is also the clinical professor of entrepreneurship and the founding director of the Levy-Rosenblum Institute for Entrepreneurship at Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business.
“Dr. Elstrott’s impressive credentials in natural foods and his expertise in the sustainable agri-food arena align perfectly with Inocucor’s microbial crop inputs, which support sustainable agriculture practices and improve the health of the plant microbiome,” says Inococur’s president and CEO, Donald R. Marvin.. “His perspective will help guide our management team and board of directors as Inocucor grows.”
Inocucor leads in bio-based products for improving crop yields, shortening growing periods and creating healthier soils for organic farmers, greenhouse growers and mainstream production farmers.
