Cell Ag: Core of the Next Industrial Shift


A New Era of Sustainable, Efficient Food Production

Cellular agriculture stands poised to redefine our understanding of sustainability and efficiency. The capacity to utilize cells as machines earmarks the dawn of a new industrial revolution. At its helm is the scalable and sustainable production of alternative proteins. 

Cellular Agriculture and Climate Change: A Vision Beyond COP28

As the world grapples with the ravaging effects of climate change, COP28 emerges as a summit pressing for global strategies to combat this issue. Amidst these strategies lies an immense opportunity: precision fermentation and plant- and cell-based meat as viable alternative protein sources. Cellular agriculture technologies empower us to allocate and deploy resources more efficiently, enhancing quality and safety and increasing yields while promoting sustainability through a zero-waste circular economy. At The Cultivated B (TCB), this vision is our operational ethos.

Our biotechnological ventures prioritize scalable, sustainable protein production. We’re not just about optimizing cellular agriculture processes; we’re about revolutionizing the entire resource chain. Our bioreactors, for instance, are meticulously crafted for energy efficiency and resource optimization.

This operational alignment with COP28’s sustainability goals drives our ambition. While we pride ourselves on our inherent low-emission design, our commitment doesn’t end there. We relentlessly endeavor to reduce energy consumption through process and resource optimization and refine our product suite to further diminish our carbon footprint.

Why Cellular Agriculture? Why COP28?

The correlation between global growth and environmental challenges is undeniable. Mounting emissions, escalating land usage and a surge in waste production paint a grim picture. This bleak canvas is further marred by animal cruelty and land depletion. Cellular agriculture presents a beacon of hope.

  1. Cultivated Meat: Imagine a world where meat production is free from the constraints of land and emissions and prioritizes animal welfare. Bioreactors hold the promise to produce only the cells we need.
  2. Precision Fermentation: Beyond meat, engineered cells can replicate almost any organic material. The result? Enhanced properties, improved nutritional profiles, safer food and monumental cost savings.

TCB upholds an unwavering commitment to climate action, integrated into the DNA of our business. Our conviction rests in fostering an ecosystem that drives mutual success. At COP28, we aim to bridge the gap between cellular agriculture’s potential and global stakeholders, promoting a holistic understanding and appreciation of this pioneering field.

The Visionary Road Ahead

Harnessing the unknown to elevate the quality of life – that’s our mantra. TCB upholds a trinity of beliefs:

  1. We remain objective, free from dogmas.
  2. We venture into the uncharted, driven by exploration.
  3. Our creations aim for tangible impact.

Through our science-driven approach, we’re not just producing products; we’re leveraging our expertise to redefine health, nutrition and resource utilization.


TCB: A Chronology of Innovation

Founded in 2021, TCB began with a singular vision: unlocking the latent power of biotechnology for future generations. Within two years, our multinational team of nearly 100 experts has achieved unparalleled milestones:

  • Pioneering biotech products tailored for cellular agriculture, including an expansive cell bank for farm animals, cost-effective cell culture media and state-of-the-art bioreactors.
  • Strategic alliances with luminaries like Ontario Genomics and McMaster University.
  • Collaboration with both small to medium enterprises and major corporate players.
  • A noteworthy global sales trajectory in 2023.

Cellular agriculture is not just a technological marvel; it is our commitment to a sustainable future.
