New plant-based analogue targets widespread adoption in the $68 billion shrimp industry.

Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH), a leader in cultivated meat and 3D bioprinting technology, is excited to announce that it has further expanded its 3D printing capabilities with the world’s first plant-based, 3D printed shrimps, a new 3D printed seafood analogue expertly designed to mimic the authentic texture and flavor of conventional shrimps.

The shrimps were precision-printed on Steakholder Foods’ proprietary DropJet printer, designed for fish and seafood printing, using shrimp-flavored ink developed by Steakholder Foods’ food technology team.

It is the latest addition to the Company’s portfolio of printed seafood products to be offered to potential customers, on a plant (analog) or potentially hybrid (combination plant and cultivated) basis, as economies of scale develop to enable price-competitive cell development.
