A biotechnology company that has revolutionized the way food is produced in a way that can improve health and environmental standards has been named one of the “Top 100 Companies to Watch” in the latest edition of Fortune magazine’s annual list of the 100 most powerful companies.
Apteligent Technologies Inc. was named in the June issue of the magazine’s ranking of the fastest-growing companies in the world, along with the likes of Google, Facebook and Amazon.
The magazine’s list, which ranks companies based on revenue growth, profitability, market capitalization and overall market value, is released annually by Fortune magazine, a leading business publication and news and information publisher.
According to the magazine, Aptelient’s sales in 2016 were more than $10 billion.
The company has become the world’s leading provider of a “biocompatible and environmentally friendly” food-processing technology, according to its website.
According the company’s website, AptaGen has the ability to “recreate proteins in the lab to make them more effective in the food chain,” as well as to create bioengineered biofuel.
In a press release announcing the honor, the company described the company as a leader in the production of biocomponents, which includes biological compounds that can be used to make products like food, biofuels, vaccines and drugs.
AptaGen is based in San Francisco, California.
The company is owned by David M. Shaffer, who has a doctorate in biochemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, and is the founder and CEO of Aptiligent Technologies.
The publication said Shaffer is a member of the board of directors for the Biotechnology Industry Organization, which promotes biotechnology and the medical field, and has served on the boards of major biotech companies.
It was Shaffer who was awarded the 2016 prize.
Shaffer and his wife, Lisa, cofounded Aptoligent Technologies in 2001 and have more than a century of experience in biotechnology, according the magazine.
Shiffer told Fortune that his company has been recognized by the company for its innovations in the biocampagnant technology used in a wide variety of food products, including biofuel and biodiesel.
“We’ve never done anything like this before,” he said.
“There are a lot of people that have not been able to get into this field, which is what we are.
We’ve seen the industry move forward, and it’s been fantastic.”
The company has had success with the technology it developed to create biocapsules that can convert waste into a protein-like substance, which can then be used as a feedstock in food and biofusel products.
The Biotechnology Innovation Lab at UC Berkeley, which was founded in 2013, is one of a number of laboratories around the world that have pioneered a way to create proteins using biocapagene.
The technology was developed by the Shiffers and was recently used to produce biofuenergies in the laboratory.
