Łódź, 9 May 2022 – Janusz Wojciechowski, EU Commissioner for Agriculture, visited Proteon Pharmaceuticals today.
Commissioner Wojciechowski’s visit to Proteon Pharmaceuticals is to get better acquainted with the latest technologies used in the agricultural sector, to look at their potential, and the opportunities created by their widespread adoption in both large industrial farms and smaller farms producing food locally.
Janusz Wojciechowski, EU Commissioner for Agriculture stated, “I am looking with great interest at innovative solutions that, through their implementation, can increase the EU’s competitive advantage built based on more sustainable food production. So, I am pleased to visit Polish companies that are becoming world leaders in offering products that can be groundbreaking for agricultural production.”
Prof. Jarosław Dastych, President of Proteon Pharmaceuticals added, “The visit of Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski to our company and the interest in the solutions developed by us is a great distinction for Proteon Pharmaceuticals and draws attention to bacteriophages as an important method of prevention or treatment of diseases in food production animals. The global challenges of antibiotic resistance as well as the growing demands in food safety are becoming increasingly critical. Natural and sustainable solutions, such as our products, are the answer to these challenges; they not only increase the efficiency of breeding, but also increase the level of food safety.”
