Multus’ new media manufacturing facility set to boost cultivated meat production

UK-based Multus has opened a world first media manufacturing facility to help cultivated meat companies cut costs as they scale up production and accelerate from lab to market.

The new facility is the first of its kind to achieve FSSC 22000 certification, establishing Multus as a ‘food-safe’ global scaling partner. It uniquely combines the quality requirements for
cell culturing with the food safety requirements of the meat industry.

Multus can support cultivated meat companies around the world in producing up to an estimated 500 tonnes of meat per year. This manufacturing capacity has the potential to significantly expand the global supply of cultivated meat. “The cultivated meat industry has to prove it can scale up with affordable products. The supply chain is critical to this in providing low-cost feedstocks that meet important safety standards and other regulatory requirements. As a developer and a manufacturer, we’re now ready to support companies reaching commercial scale,” said Reka Tron, COO and Co-Founder of Multus.
