Meatafora, a leading innovator in the cultivated meat industry, has achieved significant milestones that bring it closer to entering the consumer market with a premium meat alternative. The company procured its latest technology from Technion Israel Institute of Technology, a renowned research university, and received coverage in Nature Communications, a notable science journal.
Meatafora has successfully developed an oleogel fat substitute that mimics animal-derived fat but offers improved nutritional value. Additionally, the company has produced edible and high-quality microcarriers that are crucial for upscaling cultured meat production. “We believe the future is cultivated meats,” said Marcelle Machluf, Founder of Meatafora.
A recent report by GovGrant suggests that the cultured meat industry could account for 35% of global meat consumption by 2040. Regulatory bodies are also showing increased acceptance of cultured meat. Singapore became the first country to approve the sale of cultured meat in 2020, and the FDA in the United States followed suit in 2022. These decisions could serve as a tipping point for the industry.
Meatafora is concentrating on scaling up its operations to offer the most cost-efficient options in the marketplace. The company aims to provide a meat alternative that is not only affordable but also more ethical than the current industrial agricultural system. “This is a moment of growth for Meatafora, and we will continue to make strides towards bringing a delicious meat alternative to the marketplace,” added Machluf.
