Reach out to us to learn more about our organization!
Our vision is to connect all stakeholders (academics, industry, government, and consumers) that believe in the power of cellular agriculture. We think that a positive transformation of the agricultural system and the way we eat requires a shift in the way we think about novel foods. Reimagining how we eat and produce our food would require all hands on deck and we are here to catalyze the change!
Why Cellular Agriculture?
The demand to feed a global population of 10 billion by 2050 is challenging our food systems. A recent report released by the World Economic Forum, “Meat: the Future Series- Alternative Proteins”, has shown that depending solely on animal farming to meet the future protein needs could have severe consequences for the environment, food security and global health. This issue has raised the question of how we can continue to produce healthy, safe, and accessible food more sustainably.
We are constantly looking for passionate people to be part of Cellular Agriculture Canada.
Whether you are looking to take an active role or just want to stay in the loop.
If you work for the government, a startup, an established company, academia, or investments, there is a place for you!
We are able to provide guidance, facilitate partnerships, and promote education to anybody interested in this field.
