Biftek’s formulation is expected to dramatically reduce the cost of creating food products based on cellular agriculture and facilitate the achievement of economies of scale to catapult cultivated meat into the mainstream.
VANCOUVER, BC, November 29, 2021 / CNW / – CULT Food Science Corp. (“CULT” or the “Company”), an innovative investment platform focused exclusively on clean, laboratory-grown foods that advances the development of new technologies to provide a sustainable, environmental and ethical solution to global crises in factory farming and aquaculture, is pleased to announce that its holding company Biftek Inc. (“Biftek“or the”Holding company“) recently reported significant progress related to the commercialization and viability of its new growth medium supplement product lines (the”Growth mediumCULT’s holding company recently arranged for the transport of an inaugural sample that will serve as the cornerstone of a business collaboration with a leading cultured meat company based in Singapore.
The new formulation of Biftek, with the trade name âLyophilized Biftek Growth Medium Supplementâ, has been scientifically designed to be shipped worldwide without the need for cold chain logistics and without variation between batches, thus ensuring consistent quality between lots. Growing media are an important pillar for the massive adoption of cultured meat globally, which are essential to help achieve material cost reductions, improved efficiency, and consistent food products.
Founded in 2018 and based in Ankara, Turkey, Biftek produces a natural, animal-free, non-GMO growth medium supplement to make cultured meat more affordable. A business-to-business company, Biftek uses a novel culture medium supplement formula to grow muscle stem cells. Currently, the growth of stem cells requires conventional fetal-bovine serum (“FBS“), which accounts for 80-90% of production costs. Biftek’s formulation is expected to significantly reduce expenses related to the creation of cellular agriculture products, thereby enabling food technology companies to reduce production costs, achieve economies of scale and help catapult meat cultures into mainstream use cases.
âThis is a crucial step for Biftek towards the validation of new formulations and commercialization on a global scale. We are delighted to see Biftek’s scientific innovations emerge from the lab and into the production facilities of cultured meat producers. Biftek’s continued contributions as a leading innovator and thought leader in the growth media vertical industry are indicative of CULT’s ability to seek out and partner with leading CellAg companies, both in countries and abroad, âcommented Dr. Paul burridge, advisor to CULT.
âThe current challenges within the cultured meat ecosystem are fragmented. We believe that the most important thing is to reduce the production cost of cultivated meat products and we have developed several potential solutions to solve this problem. the most powerful tools to ensure mass adoption of lab-grown foods. Biftek’s growth medium supplement is fast becoming one of the best alternatives to FBS, âsaid Kerem Erikci, CEO of Biftek.
Biftek focuses on the production of a natural and cost-effective microorganism-based growth medium supplement for the growth of muscle stem cells. Instead of conventional fetal bovine serum (FBS) dependent production, which accounts for almost 90% of the cost, Biftek’s patent pending formulation dramatically reduces the associated expense, introducing a much better and more efficient way to grow crops. meat at an affordable price.
