ANIMAL PRODUCTS
OF TOMORROW

Cellular Agriculture France is a French nonprofit whose objective is to make cellular agriculture happen in France – this starts with informing and creating connections.

Cellular agriculture aims to develop animal products from cells or microorganisms and to offer products similar to conventional animal products. France's long agricultural traditions make it a natural environment for growth.

OUR MISSION

Cellular agriculture aims to develop animal products with a better impact on the environment, human health and animal welfare. Our mission is to bring multiple actors together – academics, institutions, consumers, politicians, entrepreneurs, companies – willing to get involved in the development of cellular agriculture in France.

Why is cellular agriculture important?

The impact of intensive farming on the environment and the increase in the world’s population, which is expected to reach 10 billion people by 2050, makes it urgent to rethink our food system. As a result, we need to think about new ways of producing food that are healthy, safe and compatible with the challenges of the century: respect of the environment and animal welfare, the fight against antibiotic resistance and food insecurity. As factory farming reaches its limits in meeting the growing demand for animal products in a sustainable manner, cellular agriculture is emerging as a complementary solution to provide meat and other animal products that consumers love.

Cellular agriculture today

Although the first work in cell culture dates back to the nineteenth century, it is since the 2010s that cell agriculture has started to take off. Today, a growing number of universities, research centers, and nonprofit organizations, as well as over 100 companies, are working on the development of cellular agriculture products, particularly in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
