Cellular Agriculture Goes Fishing

Jan 11, 2018

More than 3 billion people rely on fish for at least 20% of their animal protein. In the last 50 years, annual fish consumption has doubled to be above 20kg per person. While practices like aquaculture have led to an increased supply of farmed fish, about one-third of commercial fishing is done at biologically unsustainable levels.

Overfishing, coupled with destructive practices like bottom trawling, occurs at unsustainable levels that deplete global fish populations faster than can be...

Cellular Agriculture: From Lab to Market

Jan 04, 2018

In 2013, Dr. Mark Post's team developed the first cultured meat product. It took three lab technicians three months to grow and put together 20,000 cow muscle fibers to make the first $330,000 lab-grown burger. In the coming years, several cellular agriculture ('cell ag') companies are preparing to release their first commercial product. Scaling of the production process will be important to ensure that cell ag is a commercially viable option. There are four key areas that need to be further...

In 2013, food critic and writer Hanni Ruetzler took a taste out of a dish costing more than $300,000 and remarked how it was "close" to tasting like real beef [1]. The dish in question was not a plant-based meat alternative; it was in fact real beef - beef that was made in a lab! This taste test was the first lab-grown beef dish, and it was created by Dr. Mark Post and his cellular agriculture research team in the Netherlands. Cellular agriculture encompasses the fascinating field of growing...
