Cell growth media for lab grown meat
We make the most important ingredient for lab grown meat - cell growth media. We make cell growth media 1000 times cheaper than anyone else through our novel production system. Future Fields started out as a lab grown meat company, focusing on chicken products. We developed our first prototype using cell culture media available on the market today. With this, the price of our chicken was $3000 US per lb. Would you buy a really good chicken nugget for $300? Probably not. We prioritized overcoming this hurdle first, and we were successful! We developed an entirely new way of producing growth factors - which are the key (and most expensive) component of cell culture media. We realized this technology could solve the same problem all lab grown meat companies face. Given our mission to singlehandedly kickstart the next agricultural revolution, we decided to pivot and focus on enabling the entire industry to succeed. Our cell culture media is affordable, scalable, and fully customizable to meet the specific needs of individual cell lines, from pork to kangaroo, and everything in between.
