Meat has been an integral part of our culture since the dawn of humanity. We crave meat, celebrate it, but its production is becoming unsustainable. Animal agriculture utilises over 80% of the world’s habitable land, 30% of our freshwater supply, and is a major driver for deforestation. Growing population and dietary changes are predicted to lead to scarcity and escalating prices.
Cultured Meat Technologies meets this challenge by advancing a cost-effective solution for cellular agriculture, that is scalable and sustainable by design. Cultured Meat is animal-free meat does not compromise on nutritional value, aroma or flavour.
Cultured Meat groundbreaking process starts with GMO-free animal cells that grow indefinitely without animal-derived components.
To make cultivated meat, scientists extract muscle stem cells (called “myosatellite” cells) from an animal and grow them in a medium (a highly processed raw calorie source) to produce muscle tissue in a laboratory setting. Next, the tissue is fed, multiplied, shaped, and structured using bioreactors to become what we might recognize as a burger or meat product.
