Contract manufacturing is the best way to scale-up with limited funds, according to Israeli cultured meat firm Aleph Farms. CEO Didier Toubia said the firm does not want to spend all its USD 120 million funding on capital expenditure. Aleph has inked an agreement with Singapore contract manufacturer, Esco Aster, to start production by 2025. The operation in Singapore is sufficient to cater for the Singapore market as well as neighboring countries, said Mr Toubia. Aleph intends to launch thin cultivated beef steaks in Singapore restaurants.
