Partnership sees Mosa Meat accelerate introduction of cultivated meat products

Dutch cultivated meat business, Mosa Meat, has partnered with animal nutrition and aquafeed specialist, Nutreco, and US venture capital fund, Lowercarbon Capital, to accelerate the market introduction of Mosa’s products.

In 2018, Mosa Meat, a Maastricht University spin-out that produced the world’s first beef burger made directly from cow cells in 2013, raised €7.5 million to bring its cultured meat to market in 2021.

“As we enter a new phase, we’re excited to work with Nutreco, who have brought us their deep expertise managing manufacturing supply chains at a truly global scale, as well as Lowercarbon Capital, who draw on deep experience accelerating companies to have a global impact,” says Maarten Bosch, CEO of Mosa Meat.

Nutreco CEO, Rob Koremans, said: “I am thrilled that Nutreco has partnered with Mosa Meat as this investment opens the opportunity to produce real meat on a large scale in a highly-sustainable and animal-friendly way.

“As the global population continues to grow, the increased demand for protein will place more pressure on our food production system.

“If we are serious about feeding the future in a sustainable way, we will need to produce protein from a variety of sources, including animal agriculture as well as alternative proteins.”

Chris Sacca, Chairman of Lowercarbon Capital, added: “As the global meat-eating population grows, they’ll have the choice to eat real steak without concern for methane emissions, deforestation, antibiotics, or even having to slaughter an animal.”
