A New Kind of Agriculture: Farming Cells, Not Animals

Cellular agriculture is a new approach to farming. By cultivating cells rather than raising animals, we’re able to produce real meat, dairy, and other products — not replacements or alternatives — without harming animals, compromising public health, or jeopardizing the environment.
 
This revolutionary new field is attracting global attention thanks to its alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Its promise is also gaining significant interest from a wide range of stakeholders who recognize the technology’s near-limitless potential.

IntegriCulture is a cellular agriculture pioneer, driving innovation and collaboration to create a better future for everyone.

Conventional vs. Cellular Agriculture

Raising animals is resource-intensive. It consumes vast areas of land and large volumes of water to produce the food they need to grow — and the planet is running out of those resources. Conventional animal farming is inefficient, environmentally destructive, and unsustainable.

Mass production by bioreactor

Cellular agriculture is extremely efficient; cells reproduce rapidly, with minimal environmental footprint, and can be selected for their most desirable functional traits. Cell-based animal products can be produced without harming animals and with greater control over hygienic and nutritional characteristics — all with virtually boundless scalability.

Standard cell-culture technologies require that expensive external growth factors be incrementally added in wasteful batch processes.

IntegriCulture has developed a cell-culture system that effectively replicates the internal organs of the body — continuously producing, recycling, and optimizing the nutrient solution cells need for growth.

Affordable mass production is finally possible.

The CulNet System™️

Patent #6111510

CulNet technology mimics the cellular growth systems of organs connected by blood vessels.

Using this as a production platform, IntegriCulture can provide both commercial support and joint development of cell-cultured products.

The CulNet system is versatile. In addition to food, it can be utilized by a wide range of industries, including cosmetics, materials, and pharmaceuticals.

A Reimagined Future

Cellular agriculture has the potential to solve many of the problems associated with global food production, from adverse environmental impacts to food insecurity.

CulNet lays the groundwork for cutting-edge but accessible cellular agriculture technology freely available to anyone, anywhere — from the family farm to future farms in outer space.
