This will enhance the company’s ability to produce high-quality structured pork products at scale.
Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH) (formerly MeaTech 3D: MITC), an international deep-tech food company at the forefront of the cultured meat industry, today announced that it has successfully differentiated porcine fat cells from its induced pluripotent stem cell line.
This line of stem cells will enable the company to produce unlimited fat and muscle cells. This is a significant step forward in the company’s ability to develop high-quality 3D-printed whole-cut pork products at scale.
Cultivated pork is part of Steakholder Foods’ diverse species portfolio under development, along with beef, chicken, and fish.
Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods: “This R&D achievement strengthens our diverse cell lines and capabilities toward accomplishing our mission of 3D printing structured cultivated meat products at scale.”
Steakholder Foods strengthens its IP with first Canadian patent
In a continued effort to strengthen its IP, Steakholder Foods has recently been granted its first Canadian patent for systems and methods to apply external forces to muscle tissue that result in the development of high-quality complex structured meat. This patent boosts the company’s growing global patent portfolio, following similar grants earlier this year in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
