Cultivated meat eliminates the need for antibiotics, commonly used in animal farming, with major consequences for human health due to antibiotic-resistant infections. A significant bottleneck to the scale-up of animal cell culture is the cost of culture media, due mainly to the essential need of growth factors, and cost reduction is mandatory to provide a product similar in terms of price to conventional farm origin meat. Advantages of using plant-made animal growth factors may be a key point to make scaled production of cultivated meat economically viable and to reach price competitiveness.
Agrenvec’s extensive experience in routinely producing endotoxin free, recombinant proteins in plants, permits offering tailor made solutions for innovators in cultivated meat. Optimized beef, chicken, pork or fish growth factors can be produced under demand.
