Ophectra Immobilier and investments: MeaTech Group manufactures more than half a kilogram of cultivated fat biomass in a single production cycle
NESS IF WE HAVE, Israel, September 14, 2021 / PRNewswire / – MeaTech 3D Ltd. (Nasdaq: MITC), a technology company developing a suite of advanced manufacturing technologies for cultured meat production, today announced that its Belgian subsidiary, Peace of Meat, has grown just over 700 grams of chicken fat pure biomass in a single production cycle.
This achievement is believed to be the first public demonstration of single-pass growth of this amount of 100% pure cultured cellular biomass, grown entirely outside of an animal.
While many consumers currently appreciate 100% plant-based meat substitutes, many find that it does not mimic the âmeatâ of conventional meat. MeaTech believes that real cultured animal fats can potentially deliver the characteristic flavors, aromas and textures currently derived from conventionally farmed meat, thus providing an enhanced consumption experience when combined with plant-based ingredients. This new category of products is called hybrid meat.
Sharon Fima, CEO and CTO, MeaTech, commented, “The production capacities that we have demonstrated today are a successful step in line with our strategy of developing a pilot plant for the production of cultivated fats, which we plan for 2022.”
David BrandÃ¨s, CEO of Peace of Meat, commented: “Producing this amount of pure growing material in a single pass is a breakthrough towards the potential manufacture of cultured chicken fat on an industrial scale and at cost parity. The product, pending novel food approval, is designed to resemble conventional chicken fat. Our short-term goal is that this type of cultured chicken cells can be commercialized by MeaTech through strategic hybrid product development collaborations. Today’s preliminary production success brings us one step closer to our long-term goal of changing human diets towards more sustainable, yet equally tasty food choices. “
MeaTech 3D is an international company at the forefront of the cultured meat revolution, listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker “MITC”.
