White, the EDGE is a podcast series focused on providing a playbook for business owners that takes a look at the inner game of building a successful business and giving listeners the edge to become smarter, healthier and richer. Lexaria Bioscience is a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms. During the interview, Bunka shared his background and the journey that led him to Lexaria. He also talked about Lexaria’s business model and the company’s focus on improving the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients, vitamins and minerals. In addition, he discussed Lexaria’s ongoing efforts to leverage its innovative drug-delivery platform to improve the effectiveness of orally delivered compounds. “Lexaria Bioscience is a tech company, and we provide really, really interesting solutions to the pharmaceutical industry, as well as nutraceuticals and even delivery of beneficial vitamins and minerals in foods,” said Lexaria Bioscience CEO and chair Chris Bunka in the podcast. “Our technology is all about enabling a much higher fraction and a much smoother delivery of the beneficial substances in the foods you eat and in the drugs you take and, quite frankly, getting them into your bloodstream. With a lot of these compounds and drugs, the vast majority of what you eat or swallow ends up in the toilet, and that’s no good. So we can fix that.”
