Getinge bioreactors part of unique Dutch cellular agriculture initiative

MON, OCT 31, 2022 13:00 CET The Dutch government has allocated 60 million euros to support a cellular soil jar ecosystem; the technology used to produce animal products such as meat and milk protein directly from animal and microbial cells. As a member of the Cellular Agriculture Netherlands Foundation, Getinge will support the project with bioreactors and knowledge sharing. Getinge is a member of the Cellular Agriculture Netherlands Foundation, which consists of a rapidly growing community of 34 organizations (education and knowledge institutions, NGOs, start-ups and industry) with the goal of creating a healthy cellular agriculture sector. "Our bioreactors play an important role in the development of cellular agriculture," says Timo Keijzer, Director Product Marketing in the Bio-Processing product area at Getinge. "By growing the cells in a closed environment, the bioreactor, you ensure that meat or fish is grown in a clean and controlled manner. This is crucial for optimal growth of cells and thus also for the development of healthy and nutritious food." The Dutch government's financial support is the world's largest government grant ever for cellular agriculture. The amount was reserved on terms from the National Growth Fund in April this year. Implementation of the plan will begin under the coordination of the Cellular Agriculture Netherlands Foundation, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality. The confirmation of this public investment in cellular agriculture is an example of the Dutch government's commitment to building a food system that is healthy and sustainable. Combined with reforms in traditional agriculture, cellular agriculture can provide an additional option to meet the growing demand for protein worldwide. About the National Growth Fund With the National Growth Fund, the government will allocate 20 billion euros over the next five years for project investments in two areas with the greatest potential for structural and sustainable economic growth.
