For the recent  several months, we have been working on an exciting and fascinating project, which is one of a kind. 

HAIFA IN SPACE. 

Haifa has been selected to run a synthetic biology trial to grow chickpea germ, a genuine super-food, aboard the International Space Station, a project which is led by Aviv Labs & Moon2Mars Ventures.
 This ground-breaking trial will be carried out by the 1st Israeli tourist astronaut, Eytan Stibbe, which is expected to begin in February 2022.

We are heading to space to bring forward our unique pioneering spirit and expertise to space. Haifa takes part in the planning of a miniature greenhouse and setting a nutrition protocol based on our knowledge and innovative plant nutrients.
In a rapidly changing world, Haifa is moving forward to pioneer the future of plant nutrition solutions that suit new growth environments –

on Earth, and now in Space.
