This groundbreaking biotech company, with dual headquarters in the UK and South Africa, is spearheading the development of a humane, sustainable alternative to traditional meat production.
“Today’s conventional meat industry is fraught with issues, from the extensive use of antibiotics to inhumane treatment of animals and severe environmental impact,” said Brett Thompson, founder of Newform. “Newform provides a sustainable and efficient solution to
these challenges through cellular agriculture.”
Newform’s proprietary bio-production process significantly reduces the cost and time required to create cultivated food products. It represents a leap forward in food production that will empower brands and producers to revolutionise their offerings and move away from problematic conventional meat production.
Born from the combined expertise of Thompson, Tasneem Karodia, and Catherine Edward, Newform leverages their 30 years of experience in the alternative protein and biotech industries to bring innovative solutions to the market. Their cutting-edge bioplatform offers end-to-end solutions including media development, cell line creation, and bioreactor plans, simplifying the journey from lab to market.
One success story already emerging from Newform’s cutting-edge platform is the collaboration with European startup Re:Meat. The partnership has led to the successful production of a Swedish meatball prototype, demonstrating the efficacy and potential of Newform’s technology.
“Our vision is a world where sustainable, harm-free food systems deliver delicious, nutritious, cultivated food at cost parity,” Thompson stated. “By leveraging pioneering food science and cost-efficiency, we’re turning this vision into reality.”
Newform invites potential partners and interested parties to explore opportunities for collaboration. With its state-of-the-art platform and experienced team, Newform is eager to partner with leaders who share its vision for the future of food.
Newform provides proprietary technology licenses to food producers and retailers worldwide. With a focus on efficiency, scalability, and quality, the company also offers comprehensive consultancy services to help businesses maximise production, taking advantage of Capex efficiencies and a favorable regulatory environment in South Africa.
