Spirulina is getting the attention of academic researchers, according to Engr. Puente.

These include the biology, the algae’s special nutritional properties,techniques of drying, marketing and other aspects that could promote growth of the industry.
In another development, a trader from the Middle East who had tasted the high quality of the Spirulina granules produced by Aztec has shown special interest in importing the product into the Arab countries.Preparation of packaging that is labeled with the Arab language is under way, according to Engr. Puente. When this will finally materialize, he plans to expand production in a property in Tanay, Rizal.
