We are a non-profit organisation with the mission of promoting and accelerating research, collaboration, and innovation across the cellular agriculture sector in Australia. As the chief advocacy group for cellular agriculture in Australia, our aim is to support all stakeholders: researchers, industry leaders, government, and consumers. We do so by fostering regular meetings, developing partnerships with international laboratories and companies, championing training opportunities for students, and securing funds from public and private sources.
In the News
Three late-stage PhD candidates from Western Australian universities have been accepted into an industry internship program to undertake cultivated meat research. The internships are funded by the Government of Western Australia, a first for the Australian cellular agriculture sector. The project will involve growing meat cells on Cass Materials' proprietary ingredient derived from nata de coco cellulose, and researching the socio-environmental impacts of scaling its production.
As global demand for protein grows steadily, our sources of animal protein must diversify to keep up. And Australia is well placed to become an international powerhouse for an emerging research field that could transform the way we produce and eat meat: cellular agriculture.
