24/7 Market News – Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Subcontractor Pilot Production has achieved required Spider Silk Production Levels for the Spydasilk™ Apparel Launch

Kraig Labs Launches the Critical Next Phases of its Business Plan, Expanded Recombinant Spider Silk Production in Collaboration with Third-Party Contractors

ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company” or “Kraig Labs”), the biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of spider silk, announces that it has produced several new lines of larger hybrid Dragon SilkTM silkworms for its production operations in Vietnam. These new breeds of silkworms were explicitly created for large-scale production.

With a larger cocoon and longer silk filament, these optimized Dragon Silk breeds reduce production costs and increase throughput.

The new breeds were created using a process of hybridization, combining the best properties of Dragon Silk with the best practices in silkworm breeding to improve the size and robustness of the silkworm strain. Commonly used in commercial mundane silk production, the process of creating these production hybrid silkworms delivers between 30-100% larger silk cocoons than non-hybridized silkworms.

The Company first began the development of large cocoon hybrids in 2018. The success of that effort is the foundation of today’s announcement and the rollout of this technology into production. Commercializing this technology required the Company to develop multiple strains of Dragon Silk hybrids that, when paired together, deliver a consistent and scalable large cocoon production platform.

Kraig Labs is on track to complete negotiations on the structure of expanded production with this contractor before Jon Rice, the Company’s Chief Operations Officer, returns to the US this week. Based on the results of these first pilot runs and the contractors’ production capacity, the Company is now on a path to producing metric tons of spider silk.

During this trip, the Company’s top scientist has also been evaluating and updating production and science processes at Prodigy Textiles. A focus of his work has been bringing state-of-the-art technology into our Vietnamese lab to reduce and eliminate mundane silkworm pathogens known to impact global silk production and inhibited the Company’s production growth. Our facility is now one of the most advanced sericulture labs in South East Asia and is already enhancing the quality of our operations.

The management team traveled over 2,700 miles since arriving in Vietnam. The Company met with three separate contract manufacturers, spanning from Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh City, who are vying to produce the Company’s specialized silk.

“The production capabilities demonstrated by the contract producer in these first runs have given us the raw spider silk necessary to bring our first finished garments to market and the confidence to aggressively push forward for exponential increases in silk output. With these successes, we are entering the next phase of our business plan, which includes rapid production expansion with subcontractors in parallel with the growth of our nascent joint venture apparel brand. Together, our teams from Kraig, Prodigy Textiles, and Spydasilk are showing significant and tangible success on all fronts,”

– Stated Rice

Kraig Labs anticipates issuing a series of additional updates on production expansion, Prodigy Textile’s laboratory developments, Spydasilk, and other significant achievements shortly after the management team returns to the Company’s headquarters this week.
