High steaks: cell-grown meat company inks partnerships

An Israeli company that produces cultivated meat has partnered with two of Asia’s largest food companies to accelerate availability of its product in the region. Aleph Farms produces steaks that have been grown from animal cells; the company’s aim is to provide meat to consumers in a sustainable manner. Aleph has now signed memorandums of understanding with Thai Union and CJ CheilJedang in order to bring its product to Asia, which as a region has been a friend to cultivated meat products in the past.

The partnerships will allow for Aleph Farms to increase the scale of its productions and to bring its product to market in the region. The business organised a similar partnership with Mitsubishi in Japan earlier this year and has received recent investments from equity and venture capitalist firms. In 2019 its product was even grown in space in an experiment with a Russian biotech company, as part of its Aleph Zero initiative.
