- The confluence of the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, the rapid development of new food technologies and the rising global demand for protein mean that we are on the cusp of a huge and profitable investment wave into new forms of agriculture. The greatest beneficiaries of this investment wave will be cultured and plant-based foods.
- What I’ve learned through my first eleven Brave New Meat podcast interviews with founders and investors in the cultivated meat industry
- Cultivated ground meat has the potential to unravel the business model of the beef industry.
BioTech Foods is leading a €5.2 million (US$6.3 million) cultured meat project funded by the Spanish government. It will investigate meat produced from cellular agriculture that, combined with the development of healthy fats and functional ingredients, allows for slaughter-free sustainable products with particular health benefits, such as preventing colon cancer and cholesterol problems.
McMaster researchers have developed a new form of cultivated meat using a method that promises more natural flavour and texture than other alternatives to traditional meat from animals.
Blue Horizon Ventures, a sustainable food system focused venture capital fund, has held the final close of its first flagship fund Blue Horizon Ventures I, well beyond its initial target size at EUR183 million.
High-protein diets are having a moment. In any grocery store you can now buy a protein bowl, pick up a protein box of eggs and nuts for lunch, or snack on a protein bar But there’s evidence that restricting which proteins you eat — particularly cutting back on meat — could be important for healthy aging.
US grocery chain Trader Joe’s, operated by German retail giant Aldi Nord, is looking to introduce more plant-based seafood alternatives within its stores to cover all the protein customers are familiar with.
