Aleph Farms is addressing the increasing global need for protein in future decades, especially as more consumers move into the middle-class, and the demand for protein increases. We believe in the importance of protein to human well-being and the critical role that animal protein will continue to play in nourishing the world for the long-term.
Aleph is ‘coming-of-age’ at a time when eco-agri-food systems are struggling with challenges of worldwide ramifications: The dilemma of population growth and hunger (10 Billion by 2050); the demographic transition dilemma and the role of agricultural productivity (60% of global population urbanized by 2030); how to maintain or regenerate environmental integrity of the life-supporting services provided by the ecosystems of our planet (25% of our food wasted, 60% increase in food production required by 2050); and how to ensure that the ongoing transformation of global food systems meet the nutritional requirements of everyone (3 Billion overweight, 2 Billion undernourished).
Cell grown meat complements ten of the seventeen U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (2015) targeted by governmental and non-governmental organizations, and AgFood Tech initiatives, in recent years. Aleph Farms is not only a part, but a critical partner in achieving these goals.
Aleph does not intend to ‘replace’ conventional meat industries, rather to complement this industry by becoming the leading non-slaughtered cell grown meat producer, with important nutritional properties, tasty and appealing to users (consumers).
