[PODCAST] By 2035, Australia’s cellular agriculture industry could be worth as much as $2.3 billion.
Cellular agriculture, which incorporates both cultivated meat and precision fermentation technologies, has the potential to play an enormous role in helping to ease the world’s reliance on animal agriculture, while satisfying its surging appetite for protein.

Last month, Cellular Agriculture Australia (CAA), a not-for-profit organisation working to help this nascent industry flourish, released a first-of-its kind whitepaper, summarising the current state of play, and identifying the three things cell ag needs most desperately in order to grow and thrive.
And here to talk us through them, is CAA’s CEO, Sam Perkins.
