Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, the developer of spider silk based fibres, is all set to send the first shipment of its proprietary recombinant spider silk silkworm eggs to Vietnam. The company is coordinating the details with senior officials within key central Vietnamese government ministries, as well as senior leadership within Quang Nam province.

Kraig Labs will be working, in cooperation with leading sericulture experts in Vietnam, to demonstrate the performance and capabilities of the company’s uniquely developed silkworms, as it moves to expand the production of its recombinant spider silk from pilot to full scale production.

“This shipment is a pivotal moment for Kraig Labs and a breakthrough in the commercialisation of spider silk,” said COO Jon Rice. “The company and our team of consultants in Vietnam, led by Ken Le, have worked tirelessly to make this shipment possible. Due to the unique nature of this project, we have had to work hand-in-hand with government officials in Vietnam to develop the required regulations and protocols. With all of the approvals in place, we are excited to be finalising this first shipment, as we kick off the next phase of commercialising our spider silk technology.”

The company expects to have all of the required documentation for this shipment completed within the next two to three weeks and expects to be raising its silkworms in Vietnam in the fourth quarter. (SV)
