About Arcadia Biosciences

Enhancing the Quality and Nutritional Value of Crops for Today’s Consumer

Healthy People. Healthy Planet.

At Arcadia, we use science to enhance the quality and nutritional value of crops in order to deliver unique health and wellness benefits in consumer products. Since 2002, we’ve developed crops with higher nutritional value, improved climate resiliency, and maximized yield, shelf-life, and oil content. After going public in 2015, we turned our focus to non-GMO health and nutrition products and introduced the GoodWheat™ platform of specialty wheat ingredients, including varieties with higher fiber, resistant starch, reduced allergens and extended shelf life.

We’ve long proven our ability to optimize plants for their value to growers, food companies and consumers and to transform commodity crops for improved functional nutrition.
