REHOVOT, ISRAEL — Aleph Farms, Ltd., announced a goal to eliminate emissions associated with its meat production by 2025. The cultivated meat startup also plans to achieve the same net-zero emissions across its entire supply chain by 2030.

The company’s new sustainability initiatives come as it gears up to begin active pilot-plant operations. It currently is working with Black & Veatch, a global engineering firm, the build infrastructure for large-scale production of its cell-based beef steaks.

Product will be grown in large “bio farms” that resemble dairy facilities, the Cargill-backed startup said.

“At a time when the occurrence of regional and global crisis is increasing - African swine fever, Australia fires, COVID-19 — food system resilience is at the core of Aleph Farms' vision and the key to building a better future for generations that follow,” said Didier Toubia, co-founder and chief executive officer of Aleph Farms. “We have to rethink the way we use our natural resources, but our sustainability approach encompasses not only aggressive environmental goals. It also targets social, nutritional and economic objectives. We are identifying challenges and bottlenecks, engaging with experts and youth leaders, raising awareness and driving innovation across the entire value chain in order to accelerate the necessary global transition of our food system into the right direction.”

Aleph Farms is one of a half-dozen cultured meat startups currently building production facilities. Others include Future Meat Technologies, Memphis Meats, Mosa Meat, New Age Meats and Meatable.
