What's the Problem?
Animal farming is responsible for a 14% of anthropogenic GHG emission according to FAO. 41% of those emissions come from beef. This is not sustainable. We also face other problems in animal production such as biodiversity loss and antibiotic resistance. It's expected that a 70% of meat demand will grow to 2050. There are many new companies trying to face this opportunity but there is not yet an appropriate a supply chain. Accessing cell lines remains a bottleneck and engineering presents IP opportunity. There are a lack of validated cell lines barrier to upscaling progress in the field.
How are they Solving it?
Cell Farm is facing the challenge to scale up stem cell production reducing costs. To do that they are developing a proprietary stem cell bank with argentine cows genetic. This bank will include an all-in-one line: muscle, bone, fat & cartilage from premium argentine beef, optimized for large-scale growth. This bank will allow to develop a B2B model supplying this exciting emerging industry.
