LUXEMBOURG / ACCESSWIRE / April 22, 2024 / Moolec Science SA (NASDAQ:MLEC)("The company"), a Molecular Farming food-ingredient company, announced today that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service ("APHIS") of the U.S. Department of Agriculture ("USDA") has concluded its Regulatory Status Review ("RSR") for Moolec’s genetically engineered ("GE") soybean Piggy Sooy™. See post online here: [1].

The USDA-APHIS RSR determines that Moolec’s genetically engineered soybean, accumulating animal meat protein, is unlikely to pose an increased plant pest risk relative to non-engineered soybeans. Therefore, it is not subject to the APHIS regulation that governs the movement of organisms modified or produced through genetic engineering (as described in 7 CFR part 340).

"Moolec embraced Nasdaq’s slogan ‘Rewrite Tomorrow’ and took it literally! We achieved an unprecedented milestone in biotechnology with the first-ever USDA-APHIS approval of this kind," stated Gastón Paladini, Moolec Science’s CEO & Co-Founder. "We are unlocking the power of plants by leveraging science to overcome climate change and global food security concerns. I am very proud of the Moolec team, creating value for shareholders and the planet at the same time."

This milestone reinforces Moolec’s B2B go-to-market strategy for Piggy Sooy™ product, an innovative, functional, and nutritious ingredient. By adding a well-known animal meat protein (porcine myoglobin) to the standard soybean proteins, the company expects to provide food manufacturers with a unique ingredient that will have a positive carbon and water footprint.

Martin Salinas, Chief of Technology & Co-Founder at Moolec, enthusiastically announced: "We believe this milestone sets the stage for a revolution in the food-industrial biotech landscape, paving the way for expedited adoption of Molecular Farming technology by other industry players. Also, this compelling advancement signifies a stride in enhancing our operational efficiency, transforming our methods of raw material sourcing, and optimizing our downstream crushing and processing operations."

In June 2023, the company announced that Piggy Sooy™ seeds had achieved high levels of expression of pork protein (up to 26.6% of the total soluble protein) and had patented their technology. The company clarifies that Piggy Sooy™ development is set to keep moving forward completing the necessary consultation with the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"). Moolec declares to be engaged in the consultation process with the FDA, representing the next pivotal regulatory milestone preceding the commercial availability of Piggy Sooy™ ingredient.

“Nivatchai” asks to see the facts first after “Big Joke” submits an investigation into one of the NACC members.

NACC Secretary asks to see the facts of the objection petition after ‘Big Joke’ submitted an investigation of one of the NACC directors, revealing that he had just submitted the application last week. I don’t know where the document came from.

Mr. Niwatchai Kasemmongkol, Secretary-General of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), gave an interview about the case of a letter objecting to the performance of the duties of the NACC by Pol. Gen. Surachet Hakphan, Deputy Commissioner of the Royal Thai Police, said that we just received the letter last week. Must check the facts. What are the objections? And ask to see the law first and must listen to the reasons from both sides. Because it’s just a request You must check the request to see what it says.

When asked if there is an expression for Pol. Gen. Surachet is also in the NACC. Should this person be excluded from the NACC? Mr. Niwatchai reiterated that he must look at the facts in the complaint first. The time when the inquiry took place There are
constant objections. Sometimes the objections are not heard. As for how much time frame will be used for consideration? You must see what facts and evidence the submitted complaint contains. Confirming that it will be fair to both sides. Because the chances of the NACC being challenged are high.

When asked whether there was a need to go back and look at the selection process or not, Mr. Niwatchai said that the matter of the selection process was probably not the responsibility of the NACC. It had to go with the people they had recruited. The NACC is only responsible for cases of accusations against government officials. that he performed his duties illegally or malfeasance in performing duties As for the case of making accusations against the NACC, it is not the responsibility of the NACC. It must be the duty of other independent organizations to consider.

As for whether or not the two people referenced in the petition must be called to come talk to them or not, Mr. Niwatchai said that is another approach.
The part with the name of Gen. Prawit Wongsuwan, former deputy prime minister. It’s in that document. You have to go see what General Prawit testified about. Which is a way to confirm that there is still no resolution. It is currently in the fact-checking process. There has been no investigation. Must consider that Pol.Gen.Surachet How many accusations have been made? If many more cases are affected Must go and look at every matter. However, after receiving a complaint letter from Pol.Gen.Surachet There has not yet been a discussion with the NACC committee. As for whether the matter will be sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives or not, that remains to be seen. We must first consider whether the NACC has the authority to send matters to the president of the council or not. He also emphasized that the selection process is a matter for the council. You will have to check for yourself how they are recruited.

‘Today the committee What did the National Anti-Corruption Commission do? was opposed by th
e other party That’s why I said it’s already there. One day during the meeting there were many objections. As for whether the objection is factual or not, it must be examined. Because it’s just a request. Must be fair to both sides.’

When asked if it was a delay in considering the case. Police General Surachet or not, Mr. Niwatchai said, is another perspective. At present, the matter of the audit has not yet been considered by the committee. Still at the officer level Considered not yet affected and is not yet related to the case of Pol.Gen.Surachet

When asked how the document was leaked, the NACC Secretary asked, “Did he give it to reporters himself? Definitely not the NACC. I don’t know this.”

As for the case of the investigating team of the Metropolitan Police Bureau who is working on the case against gambling website BNK Master has sent a case report with accusations Pol.Gen.Surachet Another case was submitted to the NACC for consideration on Friday, April 19. The NACC Secretary said that it was submit
ted on Friday, April 19. It’s still not that fast. But you have to go and see if it’s another expression or not. Because actions have many karmas. You have to see that this is an accusation against a government official. Is it about a breach of duty? Is it about corruption? Or is there an issue regarding requesting money? Therefore, we must ask for time to consider first.

As for the details in the file that include money laundering charges, you must either accept it yourself or send the file back to the police for processing. I would have to look at it again and see first whether it is within my authority and responsibility. NACC or not? -420
