CellAg stands for Cellular Agriculture. This refers to the process of producing animal products directly from cells instead of animals. Cellular Agriculture uses the elementary building blocks of nature - cells - and cultivates them into real animal products without the need to raise and slaughter animals. As a result, CellAg has great potential to reduce the massive disadvantages of (industrial mass) animal farming. Cellular agriculture is currently developing worldwide into a transformative and emerging industry, which is working on alternatives to animal products, especially in the food industry, but also in the textile, raw material or cosmetics industry.
