Quest receives funding from Innovate UK

The UK’s Quest Meat has been awarded funding provided by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Technology Missions Fund and delivered by Innovate UK.

A total of £13.5 million was made available to 48 different projects covering a range of sectors and disciplines, including making a sustainable alternative to palm oil, engineering animal stem cells to cultivate meat production and advancing industrial biotechnology to develop sustainable packaging solutions.

Quest said it will use the funding to advance its next-generation controllable cell lines for producing cell-based meat at scale.

Quest Meat’s CEO and co-founder, Ivan Wall, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded funding to advance our innovative technology to create next-generation scalable cell lines. Engineering biology is a powerful tool for unlocking the power of scale up to create tasty, cultivated meat whilst maintaining regulatory control and safety.”
