Enabling the future of cellular agriculture in Australia
Download Your Copy Of Our White Paper
Our White Paper, ‘Cellular Agriculture: An Opportunity to Diversify Australia’s Food System’, released in August 2022, outlines the need for public investment and support across three key areas. We believe swift action across all three is critical if the Australian cellular agriculture sector is to reach its full potential.

Humans are currently eating more meat than our planet can afford
Humans are currently consuming more animal products than our planet can afford.
We live on a finite planet that is being pushed beyond its limits. Intensive animal agriculture is a major contributor to many significant global challenges: climate change, deforestation and biodiversity loss, animal welfare, food insecurity and increased public health threats such as animal to human disease and antimicrobial resistance.
Rising global demands for protein will only exacerbate these issues because the current methods for raising animals for food are unsustainable and insufficient for our growing population.
Cellular agriculture offers us the potential to sustainably produce a range of agricultural products using cells and biotechnology to meet future demands.

What Is Cellular Agriculture?
Cellular agriculture allows us to create animal-derived products using cell-based biotechnologies, instead of whole animals. It presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to rewrite animal agriculture and have a positive impact on climate change, biodiversity loss, animal suffering and public health
