Our goals are as follows: (1) grow Lifecore’s business by utilizing Lifecore’s strengths in ophthalmology, viscoelastic materials and sterile filling, (2) grow Apio’s food business and maintain Apio’s margins, (3) support Chiquita with its roll-out plans for avocados, (4) support Landec Ag in targeting top seed treatment and crop protection companies, (5) continue to invest in polymer chemistry R&D, (6) find new applications for BreatheWay packaging technology and Intelimer polymer technology that can be commercialized through Landec’s subsidiaries or third party partners, (7) find new investment opportunities for growth and margin enhancement, and (8) maintain a strong balance sheet. We see growth opportunities and we are continuing to expand our investment in R&D to take advantage of these opportunities, while continuing the shift in revenue mix to higher margin businesses.
