Avant Meats is a leading cellular agriculture company with patent-pending solutions that enable businesses to produce animal meat and protein without raising or catching and slaughtering the animal. The Company’s pilot products are fish meat and marine proteins. Thanks to our technology, we customise the nutritional profile of our cultivated fish meat while keeping them free from heavy metals, microplastics, radioactive contaminants, parasites, and antibiotics. Avant’s laboratory is in Hong Kong Science Park. Having achieved the major milestones of prototype and cost reduction, Avant is set to reach pilot scale in 2021.
