SCU was incorporated in Singapore in July 2014 by Mr Gu Huan Qing, who has 20 years of experience in the food and agricultural technology industry.
Mr Gu specialises in the production of canned abalone, bottled bird’s nest, cordyceps extract and ginseng extract. His in-depth industry knowledge and well-established business network has firm foundations in the manufacturing industry.
Mr Gu obtained his Masters of Science in Biology, with a major in plant physiology. He gained his Diploma of Business Management from the Australian Academy of Business Studies in 1991. In 1994, he started consultancy practice with INFOFISH of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and started his entrepreneurial journey in the 1990s.
Mr Gu was concerned that the lack of rare and precious plant materials due to environmental degradation and human impact would eventually translate into an acute shortage of supply and result in an uptrend in prices of these plant materials in the future. Mr Gu’s research into the area of plant stem cells began approximately six years ago, and eventually led to the development of SCU’s proprietary technology and method of isolating meristematic plant stem cells, as well as the creation of SCU’s Dendrobium extract products.
SCU aims to be the leading plant stem cell researcher, developer and producer, offering a range of products to preserve the health and youth of human beings. SCU prides itself on using its proprietary technology to multiply plant stem cells, as a means of protecting endangered natural plant species while ensuring the continuous supply of plant material extracts for current and future generations. Using its proprietary technology, SCU is able to provide a constant supply of the best quality products at a lower cost, generating value for the Company and its shareholders.
