Cult Food Science announces the launch of Cult Foods

January 9, 2023

CULT Food Science Corp, an investment platform accelerating the development of cellular agriculture technologies to advance the future of food, has expanded its operations with the launch of CULT Foods, a new products division. The CULT Foods division will develop and commercialize cell-based products in collaboration with its affiliate companies, supporting the company's mission to make cell-based products a part of everyday life.

Conventional food production is responsible for approximately one-third of the greenhouse gas emissions, actively contributing to climate change, rainforest destruction, deforestation, and loss of biodiversity. Many products in our homes and on grocery store shelves contain ingredients that can be replaced with ones made from cell-based technologies, significantly reducing our global impact on land and water resources, as well as the climate. These products cover a wide range of categories and offer extensive opportunities for innovation through cellular agriculture.

CULT Foods will be launching two new products in collaboration with its affiliates:

Zero Coffee is the world's first sparkling coffee beverage made with cell-based coffee, eliminating the unsustainable land use and deforestation that results from conventional coffee bean farming.

Free Candy is the first performance gummy made with cell-based collagen, produced without the harmful environmental impacts or ethical issues of animal farming. Collagen may improve joint mobility and decrease joint pain, as well as improve skin elasticity.

The new CULT Foods division is designed to quickly iterate and release cell-based products by leveraging the innovations and technologies already present within the Company's portfolio for maximum effect. By designing and launching novel cell-based products, CULT will both accelerate the positive impact that these technologies have and bring entirely new experiences to market for consumers.

"There are many products that depend on animal agriculture for key elements of their production. It is not only staple products such as meat that will be reinvented through cellular agriculture, but the over US$50-billion auxiliary market, such as coffee beans and collagen. Many of the key ingredients you see on grocery store shelves today can be replaced through cell-based methods, and are already being produced by CULT affiliate companies. These products represent a massive opportunity for CULT Food Science to bring interesting new food experiences to consumers," commented Lejjy Gafour, CEO of CULT.

"With every product that is released, it brings us one step closer to reducing the impact food production has on our climate," continued Gafour.

"The products that bring us so much enjoyment – an afternoon coffee or sweet snack – so often rely on environmentally harmful ingredients. CULT Foods is providing a sustainable alternative with its Zero Coffee and Free Candy products, making the joy of coffee or candy truly guilt-free", added Joshua Errett, VP Product Development of CULT.
