OUR INDUSTRY AT A GLANCE
WHAT IS CELLULAR AGRICULTURE?
Unlike conventional agriculture, cellular agriculture removes the need for animal waste and slaughter, as cells are grown externally in facilities resembling that of brewing or fermentation. Similar to traditional meat and seafood products, cultivated cells have the same genetic make-up.
Our members are pioneering the cultivated meat and seafood sector by producing a range of products including beef, poultry, pork, and seafood. Certain members are also expanding the cellular agriculture sector by developing systems and strategies for efficient bioproduction and propagation of cells.

WHY CULTIVATED MEATS?
More Info / Source:
Aleph Farms' White Paper
78% less water, 92% reduction in greenhouse gases, and 50% less energy utilized; Cultivated meat and seafood are here to stay, and here to pave the way towards a sustainable future.
The scrutiny behind the production process renders cultivated meat and seafood as a reliable source of nutrition; free of pathogens, added hormones, antibiotics, and contaminations.
Nature and Ethics
Less pollution, no animal waste / slaughter, and a recovery of ecosystems - cultivated meat and seafoods mitigate the side-effects of conventional agriculture.
REGULATIONS AND POLICY
Regulations and policies are still in the nascent phase across APAC. However, strides are being made and Singapore is the first country globally to approve the sale of a cultivated meat product. Still much more work is needed to be undertaken in the region to foster a regulatory landscape that is efficient, safe, and harmonized.
Singapore is the first country in the world to give regulatory approval to a cultivated meat product (Dec 2020). Sets the tone for the industry and framework design for APAC
APAC-SCA is committed to facilitate and work with regulatory entities in order to tackle challenges that lie ahead. We stand behind the efforts of producing clean, safe, and sustainable meat and seafood products of the future.
