I’m thrilled to share the first formal collaboration of New Harvest Netherlands.
The collaboration is alongside 3D Bio-Tissues (3DBT), a tissue engineering company based in the UK innovating in cellular agriculture and cultured meat production.
The collaborative project will venture deeper into the safety and regulatory requirements of animal-free media, its ingredients and derivatives for the production of cultured meat in the EU, UK, and other regions as time allows, building on our efforts to align understanding on the safety of cell cultured meat and seafood.
The project, which will be undertaken over the next 12 months, will include:
- Expert analysis on the current regulatory and safety legislation relating to the manufacture and utilization of animal-free media
- Predicted milestones and corresponding timeframes
- Defined action points
The aim? To better understand how, for example, 3DBT’s innovative City-mixTM cell-boosting supplements fit in. All results will be published openly on OpenCellAg.com, the clearinghouse for public-private partnerships in cellular agriculture.
This collaborative project was one of four projects funded by the Good Food Institute Europe & EIT Food Cultivated Meat Innovation Challenge, co-funded by the European Union.
Here’s the press release for the London Stock Exchange for further information.
