Scientific Expertise, Passion, and Leadership

Edward Schuler spent his 50 year career selling, developing, and processing enzymes. He started his first company in a barn in New Hampshire, honing his expertise before eventually founding BIO-CAT in 1988, then acquiring a microbials company in 2004. He held more than a dozen patents and his original enzyme blends are still used in the supplement industry. Today, Ed’s son and co-founder, Chris Schuler, who worked alongside him for decades, proudly leads BIO-CAT.
