ADM and Believer Meats Partner to Develop Cultivated Meat Products.

ADM, a global leader in sustainable nutrition, and Believer Meats, a leading pioneer of the cultivated meat industry, have announced that they have signed a non-exclusive memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on new ways to propel the development and commercialisation of cultivated meat products.

 "With a global population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050, ADM is working with partners across the value chain to meet food security and sustainability needs by expanding the protein ecosystem," said Leticia Gonçalves, ADM's president of Global Foods.

Leticia went on to comment that she sees cultivated meat as an opportunity to meet long-term food security needs.

CEO of Believer, Gustavo Burger, commented, "Our shared commitment to sustainability and expanding protein choices for consumers makes this collaboration a natural fit. By pairing ADM's leading expertise in ingredient application development and the complete nutrition solutions they bring to their customers, with our groundbreaking cell-cultivation technology, with its unmatched efficiency and scalability, we aim to accelerate the development and commercialisation of high-quality, safe, and delicious meat products that deliver on the increasing demands of our growing global population."

Believer Meats commenced the construction of its first U.S. commercial facility in Wilson, North Carolina, last year. At 200,000 square feet, the facility will be the world's largest cultivated meat production center, with the capacity to produce at least 10,000 metric tons of cultivated meat.

Under the terms of the MOU, ADM, and Believer Meats intend to work together to explore various opportunities spanning the cultivated meat production process.

The non-exclusive agreement also lays out a path to further support the partnership and industry growth by utilising ADM's processing expertise and footprint with the potential to commercialise new products arising from the collaboration.
