Dutch food startup Meatable has entered into a joint development agreement with Dutch multinational Royal DSM to co-develop growth media for cultivated meat. Growth media is a nutrient-rich liquid which contains the essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, salts, vitamins, and growth factors that cells need to grow.

In addition to focusing on the cost-effective production of growth media, DSM and Meatable will focus on the development of meat-like taste and texture of the final product, which are important factors influencing the purchase decision of consumers.

DSM Venturing, the venture capital arm of Royal DSM, was a participant in the consortium of funders of Meatable's recent raise of $47 million in venture capital.

Meatable aims to produce cultivated meat for which animal health and welfare are respected, fewer GHG emissions are released, and significantly less land and water are required. Cultivated meat replicates the natural process of fat and muscle growth, in proportions that emulate traditional cuts of meat.
