Japanese cellular agriculture company IntegriCulture is launching 'Uni-CulNet'—a cultivated infrastructure standardization framework. Through this release, the company is hoping to promote cultivated food and enter strategic collaborations that pave the way to a sustainable future for animal-based products. This includes the development of authentic meat alternatives, lab-grown leather, and replacements for other animal-based functional compounds that are found in cosmetics, nutraceutical lipid supplements, and so on.
The first arm of the cultivated infrastructure standardization framework is CulNet Pipelines which will offer joint research and development opportunities for authentic and functional cell-based products across sectors. The second branch of Uni-CulNet is CulNet Consortium which entails a joint-development scheme with cross-industry participants on both global and domestic scales. The aim here is to create "industry-wide standards for cell-based technology."
