Despite the fact that Ashton Kutcher is returning to romantic comedies, the star of That ’70s Show has made it clear in recent years that he wants to be more than just an actor. Kutcher has worked hard to establish himself as an investor and entrepreneur, and his latest venture should appeal to vegans. Kutcher and talent manager Guy Oseary are investing in MeaTech to advance their meat production technologies through his venture capital firm Sound Ventures.
MeaTech creates structured beef, pork, chicken, and animal-free ground meat by 3D printing cell-based meat. This new method was created to avoid the problems that the traditional meat industry causes in terms of animal welfare, human health, and the ongoing climate crisis. In order to create lab-grown organic material, MeaTech ethically extracts umbilical cord samples from animals and uses the cells as building blocks in bioreactors. According to Veg News, Kutcher said in a statement, “We are excited about MeaTech’s innovative technologies, which we believe position MeaTech to be the leader in industrial-scale production of cultured meat, a key for more sustainable and clean meat production.” “By leveraging our marketing, strategic expertise, and network, we intend to work closely with MeaTech’s management to help MeaTech implement its strategy and achieve its goals and global success.” Our collaboration with MeaTech is in line with our group’s mission to provide sustainable solutions by forming, investing in, аnd аccelerаting compаnies аnd technologies in а vаriety of sustаinаbility domаins. ”
