Company CEO, Mr. Michael Collinson, states “Claude’s extensive and extremely well respected experience in the crop protection industry with proven and tested go-to-market strategies for products is part of the Company’s strategic plan for further development”.
The Company grants to Mr. Flueckiger options to purchase up to 200,000 common shares. Additionally, the Company grants 75,000 options to an officer of the Company.

BVT has developed and owns patent-pending bee vectoring technology (consisting of a proprietary tray dispenser containing a unique carrier agent) that is designed to harmlessly utilize commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for a variety of powdered mixtures comprised of organic compounds that inhibit or eliminate common crop diseases, while at the same time stimulating and enhancing the same crops. This unique and proprietary process facilitates a targeted delivery of crop controls using the simple process of bee pollination to replace traditional crop spraying, resulting in better yield, organic product and less impact on the environment without the use of water or disruptions to labour.
