  • Meat-Tech 3D announced today that it has succeeded for the first time in printing a cultured beef fat structure composed of bovine fat cells and bio ink, which were grown and developed from stem cells in the Company’s laboratories. The printing of beef fat and the bio ink created an edible structure that reached a height of 10 mm. This represents a step forward for Meat-Tech’s technology, following the Company’s previous milestone of 3D printing a uniform, thin tissue of meat derived from stem cells.
