Part of the New York cohort, Novel Farms is looking to develop an inexpensive, tunable scaffold for the production of marbled cell-based meat delicacies for the next generation of ethical foodies.
In particular, it’s notable that these startups are working to address key scaling pain points for the cell-based meat industry, such as cell line development, cell culture media formulation, and scaffolding for structure and taste. By addressing these challenges through their products and services, these new players are developing a whole ecosystem and value chain around the future of food with cellular agriculture.
In their role as innovators making cell-based meat scalable, it was incredible to have all the above companies take part of the Alt Protein Conference, a two-day virtual conference taking a look at the new wave of food companies transforming our food system, which was organized by CellAgri and the Protein Directory. Great to have all the companies on board as part of the conference’s Scaling Technologies in Cell-Based Meat panel.
