Manufacturing Technology is the Missing Backbone of the Cultured Meat Industry
US institutional investment interest in the cultivated meat sector is on the rise, and for good reason. Cultivated meat offers a rare combination of structurally growing tailwinds within a defensive sector, an ongoing improvement of technological standards, and growing access to capital. However, the sector’s success to date has been led by just a few companies operating independently of one another. This means that there is still a lack of broader infrastructure that will be required for the industry to transition towards becoming a stable and consistent nutrition source for billions of people.
Steakholder Foods, formerly MeaTech 3D, (Nasdaq: MITC) is aiming to fill those infrastructure gaps to help the industry scale. The company is developing advanced biotechnology and engineering capabilities for the production of real, high-quality meat products that are slaughter-free, safe, nutritious, and affordable. As part of the company’s go-to-market strategy, they are planning to provide meat manufacturers and food retailers with the infrastructure and technology to scale production of customized cultured meats.
