The project ‘Meat4All’ led by BioTech Foods, with the participation of Organotechnie and Nobre, has been included in the Framework Program for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 of the European Union.
With cultured meat, BioTech Foods aims to offer a food alternative that will help supply the growing global demand for animal protein, while addressing the main drawbacks of industrial farming: health issues, environmental sustainability, and animal welfare.
The ‘Meat4All’ project will bring the production of cultivated meat closer to the market and provide the EU with world leaders in the field of alternative animal proteins. The challenge is to achieve the necessary production capacity to supply the meat processing industry.
Scaling up from kilograms to tons; maintaining healthy standards of cultured meat to final products and conducting tastings to determine and predict demand are the main axes of BioTech Foods’ Meat4All project supported by the EU’s Fast Track to Innovation. Within Horizon 2020, this innovation support program promotes activities close to the market whose aim is to encourage the joint creation and testing of innovative products, services, or business processes that have the potential to revolutionize existing markets or to create entirely new ones.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 958660
