Nestlé explores emerging technologies for cultured meat

To understand the potential of future meat alternatives, Nestlé is closely monitoring scientific trends and exploring emerging technologies. The company is evaluating technologies to produce cultured meat or cultured-meat ingredients with several external partners and start-ups.

For example, scientists at Nestlé Research in Lausanne are working with Future Meat Technologies, a cultured-meat start-up, to explore the potential of cultured-meat components that do not compromise on taste or sustainability. The company's novel proprietary technology is designed to produce non-GMO cultured-meat components from animal cells.

Reinhard Behringer, Head of the Nestlé Institute of Material Sciences at Nestlé Research said: “For many years we have been investing in our protein expertise and the development of proprietary technologies for plant-based meat alternatives, allowing us to continuously expand our wide range of tasty and nutritious products with a lower environmental impact. To complement these efforts, we’re also exploring technologies that could lead to animal-friendly alternatives that are nutritious, sustainable, and close to meat in terms of taste, flavor, and texture. We are excited to understand their potential.”
