REHOVOT, Israel — Aleph Farms, a food company co-founded with The Kitchen Hub and the Technion – working passionately to grow delicious, real beef steaks from the cells of cows, has announced today that it is rolling out the welcome mat at its Visitor Center. The launch of the educational complex is set to showcase the public with up-close and transparent viewing on how Aleph Farms takes a nature-inspired approach to produce meat – with full traceability, without any harm to animals and with far less impact on the environment.
Together with advocating for higher-education and mobilizing young youth for conscious consumerism, Aleph Farms has also announced today on the launch of “Z-Board”, its Generation Z global advisory board program (born from 1995-2015). Over 9-months programs, Gen-Z leaders from all continents will be partners in Aleph’s vision of developing a sustainable food system and building a transparent relationship with consumers and young communities.
As a spotlight to the movement of youth urging for climate action and its exceptional interest in cellular agriculture, the launch of Aleph’s educational center represents its commitment to younger generations – delivering a healthy and sustainable future for them to live in. Backed by survey insights of The new Future of Humanity, it was indicated that of 10,000 18-25-year olds across 22 countries – 41% respondents cited global warming as the most important issue facing the world today.
Co-developed with the Technion Institute of technology, Aleph’s innovation harnesses the power of nature and design to recreate the regenerative capabilities of the cow’s own body By mirroring the regeneration process under controlled conditions and understanding the compositions of meat, the company expertly crafts a thin-cut beef steak– composed of non-GMO cells found in tissues of beef, with a fraction of the resources needed to produce meat inside an animal.
“The initiative of launching a visitor center, came on the heels of substantial demand we’ve been receiving from schools and universities around the world – seeking to visit the facility and meet our team”, says Didier Toubia, Co-Founder and CEO of Aleph Farms. “As a leader in the emerging cultivated meat ecosystem, it is our responsibility to foster a candid dialogue with younger generations. The “Z-Board” provides a unique idea-exchange platform, to make sure Aleph Farms is building the right future for our children”, he adds. “The visitor center’s transparency and authenticity provide a balance between access unlike any meat producer had provided before, and the protection over Aleph’s proprietary technologies,” Yoav Reisler, External Relations Manager at Aleph Farms adds.
