This week Mosa Meat opened the doors to its new 29,708-square-foot scale-up facility in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The building completes Mosa’s C.A.M.P.U.S. (Center for Advanced Meat Production, Upscaling, and Sustainability), bringing the total footprint to nearly 80,000 square feet, making it the world’s largest cultivated meat facility. The ribbon-cutting ceremony included a cultivated burger cooking demonstration by 2-Star Michelin Chef Hans van Wolde.
"As this scale-up facility comes online next month, we will have the capacity to make tens of thousands of cultivated hamburgers. The facility is designed to grow as demand increases with regulatory approvals and regional market entries, up to hundreds of thousands of cultivated hamburgers per year. And in combination with our contract manufacturer in Singapore, even a lot more. We are excited to debut this great tasting hamburger today that even hardcore carnivores will love.” - Maarten Bosch, Mosa Meat CEO.
“When we introduced cultivated meat to the world, we predicted it would take 10 years to create a consumer product. Now, almost exactly 10 years later, we have a consumer product that we can start making in larger quantities and that we can start serving to consumers in Singapore, pending regulatory approval.” - Mark Post, Mosa Meat Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer.
The Leonardo DiCaprio-backed company recently contributed to the world’s first cultivated meat textbook and is a member of cultivated meat consortiums, including Cellular Agriculture Europe and Cellular Agriculture Netherlands.
