MeaTech 3D Ltd., an internationally renowned deep-tech cultured meat and food company, signed an agreement with Umami Meats for the joint development of 3D-printed cultured structured seafood.
The concept of 3D-bioprinted structured and cultured meat is quite new, and Singapore is the only country in Southeast Asia that has authorized the production and distribution of cultured meat.
Umami Meats, a Singapore-based cultured seafood company, is known for its food experiments with rare species which will have supply shortages in the coming years. This collaboration is part of MeaTech’s strategized ventures with other players in the alternative protein space making use of the company’s flexibility in its technological and biological capabilities to develop and print a wide variety of species. With this agreement, MeaTech will be adding seafood to its portfolio of bovine, avian, and porcine products under development.
MeaTech’s innovative 3D bioprinting technology can produce complex meat products with pinpoint precision at an industrial rate of production without impacting cell viability. The company plans on making a valuable contribution to helping preserve marine ecosystems and wildlife while addressing the environmental challenges surrounding the aquaculture and fishing industries through this collaboration.
