The course is designed for students and industry professionals, covering a broad range of topics including the science behind cellular agriculture and R&D opportunities in Australia.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand, the Good Food Institute and All G Foods assisted in compiling the course, as did Vow, Australia’s largest cultivated meat company, which is expected to launch its first product – a cultivated quail ingredient – in Singapore this year.
