From their early beginnings, the company has received a wide range of assistance for their emerging ideas.
“I took the company public to approach the farming community and show them what we were doing,” Graeme explained. “We offered them the opportunity to participate so they not only financially supported our initiatives, but they also came up with input, thoughts and ideas to improve the direction we're going. The majority of the funding now is coming from the actual farming community.”
Contagious enthusiasm has propelled the company forward as Lempriere believes in assembling the smartest, brightest minds with a passion for change.
This infectious mindset has led to a series of grants and pacts highlighted by a pair of 2016 zero percent interest loan agreements with the Government of Canada. These were followed by subsequent European arrangements, and US Patent and Trademark Office grants and expansions to a Clean Seed keystone patent. Most recently, an initiation of operations in Central Saskatchewan along with a provincial tax reduction from 12 to 6 percent over 15 years has been sanctioned.
