BlueNalu, a leading innovative food company developing seafood products directly from fish cells, announced the premier culinary demonstration of one of its first commercial products, yellowtail amberjack, prepared with various cooking techniques.

Test-market readiness is an essential part of BlueNalu’s plans for commercialization that culminate in large-scale production facilities. Each production facility will meet Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) guidelines and comply with regulatory requirements determined by the FDA for food production.

Investors and global partners were on hand to witness the successful preparation of the product, which served as yet another milestone that supports the company’s plans to introduce cell-based seafood in a test market within the next two years.

„To create a whole-muscle product from fish cells that are grown without genetic modification required considerable innovation. Scientifically, the achievement of going from blank canvas to food product so quickly cannot be understated. We are now ready to focus on our next phase of growth to increase production volume,” said Chris Dammann, CTO of BlueNalu.
