Thin-cut beef steak; Aleph Farms’ commercial prototype

Aleph Farms lays the foundation towards soft launch of its cultivated beef steak and has entered first phase in construction of its BioFarm™

Today marks a significant milestone for Aleph Farms — we are moving towards scale. Introducing a prototype of our first commercial cultivated steak. This prototype was cultivated using our proprietary platform which is now ready to grow steaks at our BioFarms™.

Our steaks, grown directly from non-GMO cells of a happily living cow, boast the nutritional, culinary, and sensory attributes of the meat we know and now, thanks to our new production capabilities, it will be the same cost too. Since we shared our proof-of-concept in 2018, not only have we increased the size of our slaughter-free steaks, we have adapted it to fit controlled, automated bioprocesses to ensure economic viability in large-scale production. …

Aleph Farms 3D Rendering of Space BioFarms™️

This mission will forward our vision for advancing food security by producing fresh quality meat anywhere, independent of climate change and of availability of local natural resources. We are introducing new capabilities for locally producing fresh, quality meat even in the most harsh and remote extraterrestrial environments, such as space.

To achieve this goal, we are securing strategic partnerships with technology companies and space agencies for long term collaborative research and development contracts that will ensure the integration of our cellular agriculture innovations into leading space programs. These programs will leverage our deep-rooted expertise in cell biology, tissue engineering, and food science to establish BioFarms™ (our large-scale meat cultivation facilities) in extraterrestrial environments, enabling us to eventually apply the lessons learned in space to earthbound sites. …

That is, Didier Toubia has no interest in painting cultivated meat — his company’s raison d’etre — as a better choice than conventional meat harvested from a slaughtered animal, as most plant-based meat substitutes routinely do in their marketing messages. …
