Aarhus University’s Department of Food Science boosts development of cellular foods

­­During the next five years the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University is targeting its focus into research on cellular foods by launching the flagship CellFood in corporation with a variety of other departments. The CellFood project is partly financed by a grant of 15 million DKK from Aarhus University Research Foundation.

Over and above the University funding, CellFood is supplemented with financing from private as well as fund-based contributors; allowing investigation of the possibilities for future production of cellular foods. In particular focus will centre on, cultivated meat and milk products – along with precision fermentation, where cells are producing specific components.
