Multus seeks to innovate through supplying environmentally sustainable and ethically sourced media components to the cultivated meat industry.
We are a team of scientists and engineers who believe that tackling the short-comings of the conventional livestock farming is critical in
securing a sustainable future.
Our mission at Multus Media is to enable the cultivated meat companies to flourish by developing a platform for growth factor production that serves their exact needs.
Affordable, High-quality & Sustainable
Our platform enables us to optimise a variety of growth factor proteins to meet the diverse set of needs in growing different animal cell types and tissues.
These growth factors are produced by genetically engineered microorganisms, which removes the environmental impact of using animal serum-based growth media.
All about the scale
Our system is based on simple fermentation principles used in the baking and brewing industries.
With a capacity to scale up, scale out and reduced down-stream processing, our customers are left with a solution that can compete with conventional meat products.
Accelerating Cultivated Meat
Livestock agriculture contributes to 15% of all greenhouse gas emission globally which is more than the entire transportation sector combined.
Cultivated meat brings an 87% reduction in CO2 equivalent emissions, along with 96% less fresh water use and 99% less land use to produce
the same amount of meat.
This is why our mission is to reduce the cost of the growth media for the meat, which accounts for 60-80% of the production cost of cultivated meat.
Therefore, our product can reduce the environmental and economic impact of meat production.
Multus seeks to innovate through supplying environmentally sustainable and ethically sourced media components to the cultivated meat industry. Our products provide low-cost solutions to other animal-based competing formulations, allowing our customers and their consumers to enjoy truly socially responsible products at an accessible price-point.
In an exponentially growing population, demand for a continuous, reliable supply of meat steadily grows. The livestock agriculture industry already does not keep up with demand. This industry single-handedly uses 70% of our agricultural land (1), 50% of our antibiotics (2), and 27% of our freshwater (3). Furthermore, 15% of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by this industry alone, more than the entire transport sector combined (4). Such an industry is clearly not sustainable, yet the demand for meat never lessens. As such our team is dedicated to supplying and supporting the budding cultivated meat industry, the definitive answer to the shortcomings of traditional meat (Fig.1)
Using genetically engineered microorganisms, Multus produces growth factor proteins critical for growing meat. Through close collaboration with our customers, the cultivated meat companies, our team is developing these products to meet the specific needs of the cultivated meat industry.
Our novel technology will allow our customers to produce competitively-priced, high-quality meat products. The ultimate goal for our products and our team is to facilitate the entry of cultivated meat into general markets while simultaneously competing with conventional meat industries.
