Marinova hosts Governor of Tasmania
During early November, Marinova welcomed Her Excellency The Honourable Barbara Baker, Governor of Tasmania.
Her Excellency was accompanied by Emeritus Professor Don Chalmers, Clarence City Council Mayor Alderman Doug Chipman and Clarence City Council General Manager Mr Ian Nelson.
Guests were hosted by Marinova’s CEO & Managing Director, Mr Paul Garrott, who provided an overview of the company’s operations, an introduction to fucoidan science and a tour of Marinova’s state-of-the-art fucoidan extraction facility.
“It was pleasure to host Her Excellency and the entire party,” said Mr Garrott. “Global interest in high value marine compounds is growing exponentially and the world-leading team of scientific personnel here at Marinova are always very happy to share their knowledge. Tasmania is very well placed to continue to leverage its pristine environment and its innovative marine science expertise. The state continues to uphold its well-deserved global reputation as an epicentre for marine and biological sciences.”
