(hereinafter referred to as "By-Health") signed the Strategic Collaboration for Innovation with DuPont Nutrition Biosciences ApS (hereinafter referred to as "DuPont").

Before the signing of this agreement, By-Health has worked closely with DuPont. DuPont's Danisco brand, as one of the largest probiotic brands around the world, is a supplier of core raw material for Life-Space probiotics. By-Health has reached an innovative strategic partnership with DuPont, and the two will carry out R&D in the mode of transnational cooperation, which may help Life-Space with the synergy of upstream and downstream industries, improve the innovation capacity of Life-Space in the R&D stage of probiotics, and further strengthen Life-Space's advantages of scientific research and product formulation in terms of probiotics.
