Recently he worked at Switzerland headquartered ag-tech giant Syngenta as portfolio manager for biologicals, seed treatment and insect control and has held a series of global and regional positions with the company in Basel and Pakistan.

"Humair has spent the majority of his career working within the food value chain and brings with him invaluable industry experience and expertise," said Sean Smith, CEO of Eden Research in a stock market statement.

"He joins a small but growing commercial team at Eden, focused on growth and the creation of long-term value for our partners and shareholders.

"Humair's appointment is a demonstration of our intent to add to our team's resources and capabilities, supported by our stronger balance sheet following last summer's fundraise and our increasing revenue streams as we continue to grow the company organically across various fronts.

"We look forward to his contributions and the opportunities that lie ahead."

Based at Milton Park, Eden Research develops and supplies innovative biopesticide products and natural microencapsulation technologies to the global crop protection, animal health and consumer products industries.

It posted revenue for the year to December 31, 2023 of £3.2 million - up from £1.8 million a year prior - while cutting its operating losses by 27 per cent.
