OKC firm developing tests aimed at making food safer
Great Plains Microbiology hopes to make its tests available to companies early next year.
Great Plains is a recent participant in The Oklahoma SBIR Collaborative Resource, a program led by the nonprofit i2E Inc. and the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology to increase federal Small Business Innovation Research grants in Oklahoma.
The program helped Zegrati write a proposal for a SBIR grant.
Great Plains hopes to make its new food testing technology available to companies in the first quarter of 2014 and hopes to boost its sales force by 2015 to aggressively seek out new food producers as potential customers for the Great Plains testing technology.
“We're going to go after those companies, and it's going to be fun,” Zegrati said.
