Crisp Meats Workshop 2022

CRISP Meats Workshop 2022

22 November 2022

The first face-to-face get together for the CRISPMeats team was for a workshop held at NUS Department of Food Science and Technology (FST). The team gained valuable insights from NUS FST sharing on downstream processing and waste valorisation for alternative proteins. It was an afternoon well-spent on fruitful discussions with team members from National University of Singapore and Singapore Institute of Technology on R&D challenges that the cultivated meat ecosystem is facing.

CRISP Meats is a multi-agency programme hosted by BTI and partnered with IHLs to advance #CultivatedMeat research. Collaborative efforts such as CRISP Meats are supported by the Singapore Food Story R&D Programme to build food security capabilities and bring Singapore one step closer to its 30by30 goal.

Many thanks to Professor Weibiao Zhou, Head of Department of NUS FST, for the opportunity to visit and for hosting us.
