Steakholder Foods receives $1M grant for 3D bio-print structured cultivated fish products

A significant step forward in the company’s commercialisation strategy for 2023

Israel-based startup Steakholder Foods has received its first grant to develop 3D-printed structured eel and grouper products with Singaporean cultivated fish and seafood company Umami Meats. The initiative is being funded by a grant from the Singapore Israel Industrial R&D Foundation (SIIRD), a cooperation between Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA).

Steakholder Foods’ partnership with Umami Meats offers a unique opportunity for market entry in the only country in the world where cultivated meat has regulatory approval. The collaboration aims to develop a scalable process for producing structured cultivated fish products. Steakholder Foods will use its newly developed technology for mimicking the flaky texture of cooked fish that was recently submitted for a provisional patent application.

The project’s first prototype, a structured hybrid grouper product, is expected to be completed by Q1 2023. The product will be printed using Steakholder Foods’ proprietary 3D bio-printing technology and bio-inks that will be customized for Umami Meats’ cells.
