White Dog Labs might be based in Delaware, but the biotech company has big plans for its future in Minnesota.

White Dog Labs aims to harness the power of microorganisms to address global challenges in food sustainability, climate change and general human and animal nutrition.

The company is currently raising funds from investors to reopen the Central Minnesota Renewables facility in Little Falls. By doing so, White Dog expects to restore at least 40 jobs to the city and support local farmers by buying 7.5 million bushels of corn.
