Company insight

MeaTech 3D is an international company at the forefront of the cultured meat revolution. The company initiated activities in 2019 and is headquartered in Ness Ziona, Israel, with a subsidiary in Antwerp, Belgium. The company believes cultured meat technologies hold significant potential to improve meat production, simplify the meat supply chain, and offer consumers a range of new product offerings. MeaTech has a particular focus on premium, center-of-plate meat products, such as structured marbled steaks. This includes development of high-throughput bioprinting systems. Towards this goal the company is developing a suite of advanced manufacturing technologies to produce cell-based alternative protein products. This includes development of cell-lines for beef, pork, and chicken. Cell-based ingredients are also believed to have significant potential to enhance the taste, aroma, and texture of plant-based protein products.

“We are delighted to partner with MeaTech and assist it in its journey to become the market leader in cultured meat production,” said Ashton Kutcher. “We are excited about the innovative technologies, which we believe position the company to be the leader in industrial scale production of cultured meat, a key for a more sustainable and clean meat production.”
