Steakholder Foods secures initial SIIRD grant for 3D-printed fish

Steakholder Foods has secured a first-phase payment of $220,000 from the Singapore-Israel Industrial R&D Foundation (SIIRD), out of a maximum $1 million grant from SIIRD.

Steakholder Foods has 3D-printed hybrid fish using its SHFish – White Fish plant-based raw material formulation and cultivated grouper cells from Umami Bioworks. The printing was done with Steakholder’s Drop Location in Space (DLS) technology.

After undergoing "rigorous validation testing" by SIIRD, the hybrid fish was found to have similar texture, flavour and nutritional values as traditional fish.

Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods, said: “We believe that our initial SIIRD grant payment is indicative of non-dilutive funding sources that we hope to make available to Steakholder Foods in the foreseeable future, as our technologies continue to reach more advanced TRLs.”
