Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Introduces New, Enhanced Line of Dragon Silk Silkworms for Commercial Production

Ann Arbor, MI – July 6, 2022– 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.

“The hybridization program was a key part of the Company’s technology roadmap and something our R&D team has been quietly working on behind the scenes,” said Company COO Jon Rice. “Today, we announce that this technology is in the factory. This technology will lower our operating costs from rearing all the way through silk reeling and spinning. Over the coming months, our production team will transition egg production to this new, larger Dragon Silk line.”

Accelerating the transition of these new larger breeds of Dragon Silk to production was driven by the Company’s success with 3rd party contract production and our rapidly growing demand for increased quantities of Dragon Silk.

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

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – June 21, 2022– Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company” or “Kraig Labs”), the biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of spider silk, announces the completion of its third-party pilot production. As a result of this highly successful program, Kraig Labs will launch the critical next phases of its business plan and expand its recombinant spider silk production in collaboration with third-party contractors.

Key Kraig Labs management team members traveled to Vietnam to review the results of a series of pilot production runs completed by one of the silk production subcontractors the Company has been working with in preparation for entering the next phase of its business plan. The subcontractor pilot program exceeded management’s expectations to the point that Kraig Labs is now finalizing the terms of a 5-year production contract. This joint effort, by the subcontractor and Prodigy Textiles, the Company’s Vietnamese subsidiary, has already completed production of the raw recombinant spider silk needed for the first apparel launch under the Company’s jointly owned apparel brand, SpydasilkTM.

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 SpydasilkTM 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, SpydasilkTM, and other significant achievements shortly after the management team returns to the Company’s headquarters this week.

This system merges the performance of spider silk with the well-established, large-scale supply chain for mundane silk.

With the growth of its production operations in Vietnam over the last two quarters, the Company is now positioned to allot a portion of its spider silk production to address the medical community’s needs. This week’s shipments are just the first in what the Company hopes will be a significant mid to long-term market growth opportunity for Kraig Labs and its foray into the growing field of bioengineering.

“Over the last month, we have seen a significant increase in the demand from the medical field for our spider silk fibers and fabrics,” said COO Jon Rice. “With the great work our team in Vietnam has done increasing monthly silk production, we are now positioned to begin supplying R&D samples for this new and exciting end market. As these applications often require FDA approval, we believe the biomedical space has the potential to play an important role in the long-term growth of the Company. Over the coming months we will be closely monitoring the results of these first tests and assessing additional opportunities for the spider silk gels and films we have already developed into the broad field of biomaterials.”

These materials will be dedicated to the Company’s joint venture apparel brand, SpydasilkTM. The remaining 15% of production will be devoted to the Company’s regenerative breeding program and growing the production base for the third quarter and beyond. 

The relationship between nutrition and high-quality silk production cannot be overstated. Nutritional management is one the most important factors in maintaining optimal colony productivity and wellbeing. This new vendor verification process will play an essential role as the Company looks to the future and outgrowing its existing production footprint and supplier base.

“Prodigy Textiles is experiencing intensive growth,” said Company COO, Jon Rice. “Putting systems in place to ensure that we are able to sustain Dragon Silk’s™ record-setting performance levels is key to managing that growth and delivering cost-effective and eco-responsible spider silk. This new supplier verification process will give us the confidence to aggressively pursue the growth needed, by increasing feed efficiency and maintaining feed quality, to fulfill material demand for months and years to come.”
