Meatech 3D Develops Novel Process to Create Better Muscle Fibres From Cultivated Stem Cells

MeaTech 3D, a company that combines cultured meat production with 3D printing technology, revealed significant improvement in its differentiation process from stem cells to mature muscle fibers. 

The novel technology allows muscle cells to fuse into fibers with improved density, thickness, and length, that better resemble those in whole cuts of farm-raised meat. Based on these improvements, MeaTech has filed a provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

"We took another important step towards our goal of developing a true replacement for conventional meat," said Arik Kaufman, CEO of MeaTech. "We are committed to advancing our cellular technology to create an eating experience of cultivated meat that replicates that of farm-raised meat."

MeatTech's achievement comes after successfully 3D printing a steak of about 115g comprised of actual living muscle and fat tissue.

"MeaTech's wonderful results place the company at the forefront of the cultured meat revolution," said Yaron Kaiser, Chairman of the Board. "Thanks to the professionalism and capabilities of our technological team, we achieved a result that gives us a clear competitive advantage and puts us on the path to changing our lives and the way we consume meat. " 

MeaTech 3D was founded in 2019, and is listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker "MITC". The company has facilities in Ness Ziona, Israel, and Antwerp, Belgium. Its modular factory design allows it to apply its production processes to different types of meat, such as beef, chicken, and pork, both as raw materials and whole cuts.
