harnessing the most cutting-edge technologies from all spheres of science to grow animal product without animals

Meat, Milk, and Eggs Without Animals

New Harvest is pioneering the next frontier of agriculture by reimagining the way we make animal products—using cells instead of animals.

It's no secret. Our growing dependence on animal agriculture continues to erode biodiversity, monopolize arable land, and incubate zoonotic diseases.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

We’re developing the research ecosystem and new technologies needed to create a more resilient and responsible global food system.

Last month, Forbes contributor Errol Schweizer published a list of questions about cell-based meat, requesting more information from cell ag stakeholders about issues like growth media, antibiotics, and food safety. Andrew Stout, a PhD candidate in bioengineering at Tufts University, took a stab at answering Schweizer’s questions from his perspective as a cultured meat researcher.

New Harvest Seed Grantee Seeks Beta Testers for Cell Counting App

Santiago Campuzano developed the mobile app SCellyCus to automate the process of counting cells—a fundamental and tedious step of most cultured meat experiments. He is looking for beta testers to help him improve the app.

Getting to know…John Pattison and Ian Johnson of Cultured Decadence

John Pattison and Ian Johnson co-founded Cultured Decadence, a cellular agriculture seafood company developing cell-cultured lobster, in 2020. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Cultured Decadence is one of the only cellular agriculture companies in the Midwest, and the only company in the United States targeting shellfish. At the beginning of April, Cultured Decadence raised $1.6 million in a pre-seed round and received the first state funding for a cellular agriculture company (1).

I spoke to John—a former New Harvest intern and the current treasurer on our board of directors—to hear about his experience starting a company. Ian also joined the call to share his technical perspective.
