MeaTech 3D announces collaboration with Umami Meats
Israel-based MeaTech 3D has signed a memorandum of understanding with Singapore’s Umami Meats for the joint development of 3D-printed cultured structured seafood.
This collaboration opens a door for both companies into the Asian market, and Singapore specifically, which is currently the only country that has authorised the production and distribution of cultured meat.
The agreement is part of MeaTech’s strategy of collaboration with other players in the alternative protein space and takes advantage 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.
The company’s innovative 3D bioprinting technology can produce complex meat products with pinpoint precision at an industrial rate of production without impacting cell viability. Through the company’s private subsidiary, MeaTech is developing and commercialising its 3D-printing capabilities in-house and to third parties in the food tech sector.
