Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking to pioneers of the meat and seafood industries, who are all creating the future of what we eat. The way meat is currently produced has many unethical and unsustainable flaws, so we look to innovations to find solutions. Cultivated or Cell-Based foods are created by growing meat from the cells of animals, meaning no animals are harmed for its production and we can create an unlimited amount of food. In the words of today’s guest, it’s just “cleaner, safer and more responsible”. When we talk about the food industry, let’s not forget our best friends, guardians of our homes, and balls of fur – cats and dogs.
In this Episode of Sustainability Matters Today, I speak with Rich Kelleman, CEO and Founder of Bond Pet Foods, and Champion of Cultured Pet Food. Bond is a Biotechnology company using cellular agriculture to make animal-free high protein pet food products. In their manufacturing process, which is often compared with brewing beer, they create cruelty-free animal proteins for dogs and cats that are safe, nutritious, and tasty. They’ve even completed their very first protein-packed dog treat bars, made with nutrient-dense yeast proteins and vegetables.
Listen to this episode to find out more about the future of our food industry, and how Rich came up with the idea of creating cleaner pet food!
