ZeaKal is a team of innovators committed to improving how we nourish the world.

The name ZeaKal comes from our roots spanning New Zealand and California. Grounded in transformative science, our plant trait technologies have been proven to increase carbon capture, nutritional density and nutrient use efficiency in plants. With nimble global operations spanning gene to field, we pioneer new tools to produce more sustainable and affordable nutrition across the world’s most important crops.

Through our science and core principles, we have attracted leading industry collaborators and investors. Backed by a growing community of global partners, we are building a more equitable and resilient agricultural system on a smaller environmental footprint.

We believe access to food and nutrition is a basic human right. Producing it as sustainably as possible is the only way we can nourish the next generation and leave the world better than we found it.
