With the ‘alternative’ protein and meat market forecast to have a compound annual growth rate of 9.7 % between 2020 and 2025, steaks manufactured by 3D printers are looking ever more likely to appear on UK menus soon.
Redefine Meat has recently received $29 million in funding to build a manufacturing and distribution plant in Israel, targeting not just their home market but the UK and Europe.
The alternative protein and meat market has shown enormous potential for growth in recent years with support from global brands like McDonald’s rolling out the McPlant Vegetable Deluxe.
Redefine is now developing alternative meat products by creating products that look and taste even better than the real thing. The strategy to do so is from research on, and market testing of, human sensory experience.
The structure of muscle and fat layering in steak is replicated and enhanced through the 3D printing, and blind testing is already reported to leave tasters unable to distinguish between real steak and the 3D printed alternative.
