Bestgrand will invite more than 20 experts and scholars from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and other institutions to set up a research and development team in Nanhai new district. They will also build a biomedical industrial park and a health industry research institute, focusing on the extraction and production of anthocyanins, astaxanthin and curcumin.
"Nanhai new district is boosting its marine biomedical industry and health food industry, which offers great opportunities for us to cooperate," said Chen Jianneng, president of Bestgrand, adding that the district's convenient transportation conditions, sound business environment and scientific prowess will also facilitate the company's development.
