The Indian and Australian companies behind a new strain of pineapple are hoping to revive the industry after years of declining sales.
The company, which has been developing a new, genetically modified strain called the pineapple plant, has partnered with California’s Ashwaganda to introduce the plant to growers.
Ashwagandan has been cultivating the pineapple for centuries.
It has been used as a natural medicine, food, and fiber for centuries in the Himalayan region.
It was also the first crop to be grown on the mainland of Australia, the island nation that now shares its land with New Zealand and Australia.
“Ashwagsana has been an important part of the pineapple industry for centuries, and has provided a sustainable source of pineapple juice,” Ashwagganda chief executive David Kallenberg told The Wall St. Journal in a statement.
“This new product, which is produced by an Indian company, represents a significant step forward in establishing Ashwagsas pineapple production.”
Kallenberg said the company had invested in the plant because the company was the first to develop the new strain, which was resistant to several pesticides and fungi.
He added that the company hoped to develop it further and commercialize it as a new food ingredient.
Ashwal’s production line of the new pineapple is in its plant in the U.K. and the U .
Kallenburg said he hoped to produce around 1 million pounds of the Pineapple Tree Fruit in 2018.
He expects the company to eventually produce as many as 5 million pounds annually.
Ashwill’s Pineapple plant produces pineapple juice that can be consumed as a beverage, a salad dressing, and is used in other processed products.
The pineapple fruit is considered a staple food in India and Australia and has been growing at an unsustainable rate of around one million pounds a year for decades.
Ashwar’s company also recently won the right to grow the pineapple in New Zealand.
The New Zealand government said the new plant will help create a green revolution in the country’s pineapple industry, with the pineapple being grown on all sides of the country, and not just in the Pacific Ocean.
