UNITED KINGDOM, London. Companies behind the fast-developing 3D printing technology have set their sights firmly on working with the rapidly-growing plant-based food industry, writes GlobalData.
Meat alternatives are increasingly becoming mainstream and 3D printing businesses, such as Israel's Redefine Meat and Spain's Novameat, believe their technology can help improve plant-based products and speed up the manufacturing process. Such potential has seen both Redefine Meat and Novameat attract the backing of investors recently.
Andy Coyne, Food Correspondent at GlobalData, says: “ What these companies have now worked out is that their technology can help plant-based food manufacturers to make a better product. This is a more practical and possibly faster-to-market use for the equipment.”
