It is possible to alternatively substitute proteins contained in meat with a well-structured and well-balanced diet consisting of sufficient amounts of plant protein. However, for a large part of the population, meat will probably always stay the choice number one, that is why we decided to embark on this journey. The journey of cultivated meat production, which should decrease the suffering of animals.
At BMT we work on changing the future of meat – meat without the need of killing animals or destroying the planet; meat that is healthy and accessible to all for an acceptable cost. We are developing the technology for cultivated meat production without the use of animal components. Our starting project is beef and we plan to later add pork, chicken and other types.
Cultivated meat originates by a controlled proliferation of animal cells. It is made using the same techniques of tissue engineering that are traditionally used in humane regenerative medicine.
At BMT we aim high, and we plan to build up a Czech biotechnological center of an international significance which will place among the leaders in cultivated meat production technology. We do not believe that industrial killing of animals and the ecological demand of large-scale farming correspond to the ethical standards of modern society. That is why we decided for a vigorous change.
