Commenting on the Quarter, Nanollose Executive Chairman, Dr Wayne Best, said: " With proof of concept at scale now established with our partner Birla Cellulose, the Company is in a great position to continue to host encouraging discussions with a number of notable potential partners in the apparel and fashion sector. The availability of Nullarbor-20 fibre has already enabled us to secure an agreement with sustainable denim manufacturer, Orta, and discussions with a number of additional potential collaborators are expected to be finalised imminently. I'm also encouraged by our recent work on vegan leather which complements but is independent of our Nullarbor fibre technology. I look forward to updating shareholders with further exciting developments in both these areas in the near future."
