Kianti is the CEO and founder of Upstream Foods. She is a tissue engineer by trade and has done research on using 3D-printing technology to create tissue for medical purposes at both Utrecht University and Harvard Medical School. She felt a strong need to contribute to a better world and started looking for that sustainable application of the tech she was already working on. That led her to the cultivated meat industry. She gathered a team around the mission to remove animals from our supply chains, starting with fish. Upstream Foods is developing a novel cultivated fat ingredient, to bring the authentic taste, creamy mouthfeel, and all the health benefits of traditional seafood, to plant-based seafood. Their ingredient enables plant-based seafood producers to create better products. With a small number of cultivated cells, we can have a big impact on the quality of the product: seafood without a catch.
