Steakholder Foods has announced its inaugural commercial MOU in the private sector with Wyler Farms, one of Israel's leading alternative protein producers and premier tofu producer. The terms of the deal involve Wyler Farms acquiring Steakholder Foods' state-of-the-art 3D Fusion Pro meat printer, along with a subscription to the company's SH Software and its NutriBlend ink for plant-based meat production.
To the best of the company's knowledge, this marks an industry-first incorporation of industrial-scale 3D printing technology into the food industry.

With both companies committed to driving this collaboration forward, the installation of the Fusion Pro 3D printer is anticipated to be completed between Q4 of 2024 and Q1 of 2025.
The Fusion Pro's modular design, capable of producing up to 500kg of highly advanced texturized printed products per hour, highlights the companies' shared dedication to innovation and sustainable production practices. This partnership enhances Wyler Farms' production capabilities and represents a crucial step in the evolution of plant-based meat technology.
This milestone strengthens Steakholder Foods' efforts to reach commercialization, solidifying its role as a leading proprietary 3D printing supplier to the plant-based and cultivated food industry.
