In Michigan, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc., a leading developer of spider silk-based fibers, is finalizing the details of its first shipment of their proprietary recombinant spider silk silkworm eggs to Vietnam. Kraig Labs will be working, in cooperation with leading sericulture experts in Vietnam, to demonstrate the performance and capabilities of the Company’s uniquely developed silkworms, as it moves to expand the production of its recombinant spider silk from pilot to full scale production.
The Company is coordinating the details of this shipment with senior officials within key central Vietnamese government ministries, as well as senior leadership within Quang Nam province. The Company expects to have all of the required documentation for this shipment completed within the next two to three weeks and expects to be raising its silkworms in Vietnam in the fourth quarter.
“This shipment is a pivotal moment for Kraig Labs and a breakthrough in the commercialization of spider silk,” said the Company’s COO, Jon Rice.
