CULT Food Science announces MOU for first of its kind supply agreement for cell-cultivated chicken

August 22, 2023

CULT Food Science Corp has announced a partnership with Korean pet foods startup Everything But to supply cell-cultivated chicken for the company's stable of sustainable pet food brands.

In collaboration with Everything But, the company will be including cell-cultivated chicken in its dog and cat foods brands, which currently include Noochies! Cultivated Pet Food, Marina Cat and Indiana Pet Foods.

Cell-cultivated chicken was recently approved for sale in the USA for human consumption. The regulatory pathway in pet food requires approval from the Center For Veterinary Medicine, a branch of the US Food and Drug Administration. Chicken is the leading animal protein consumed by cats and dogs in the USA.

Intensive poultry farming has a significant environmental footprint, and potentially severe impacts on human health. Factory-farmed chicken manure has been shown to contaminate air, land and soil in areas surrounding factories, including chemical/microbiological contamination of drinking water sources and oceans. Antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance from widespread chicken consumption is a serious and growing concern for the human health system.

Cell-cultivated chicken ingredients are produced by taking a sample from a live chicken and then growing and scaling the cells in large bioreactors. This innovative process allows for the creation of chicken-based pet food products such as treats, foods, supplements and toppers, without the need for high-impact chicken farming.

The company's cell-cultivated chicken products are expected to be among the world's first cell-cultivated chicken pet products brought to market.

The availability of the company's cell-cultivated chicken pet products will be announced in the near future.
