New Partnership Aims to Revolutionise Taiwanese Cuisine with Steakholder Foods’ 3D Printing Tech

Steakholder Foods Ltd and the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan announce a partnership to develop and commercialise a range of products using Steakholder Foods’ 3D printing technology and plant-based premixes specifically tailored to Taiwanese cuisine.

The company’s ready blends were launched on the US market just last month, marketed as SHMeat and SHFish, entailing blended dried extracts of ingredients ready for mixing to create 3D-printed plant-based beef steak and white fish products.

Diminishing Taiwan’s reliance on animal meat

Under the new agreement, Steakholder Foods will collaborate with ITRI to develop commercial plant-based meat alternatives, enabling Taiwan to produce its own meat alternatives. Leveraging Steakholder Foods’ technology, this partnership aims to diminish Taiwan’s reliance on traditional meat supply chains, fostering greater food diversity and sustainability in the region.

To expedite growth in Taiwan, the partnership will prioritize the commercialization of Steakholder Foods’ products through alliances with leading Taiwanese food companies. A crucial aspect of this strategy involves the sale of Steakholder Foods’ 3D printer and premium ingredients, enhancing the local production capabilities for plant-based meat alternatives.

By combining our advanced 3D printing technology with ITRI’s extensive research capabilities, we are now able to offer a range of delicious plant-based foods that will help to significantly reduce the environmental footprint in Taiwan.”

Shih-Chi Lee, Deputy Director General of ITRI Central Region Campus, added: “The collaboration with Steakholder Foods allows us to push the boundaries of food technology and sustainability in completely new ways. Our collaboration will pave the way for exciting advancements in the Taiwanese food industry, expand our portfolio to include new food products and categories, and ultimately help improve food security and create a healthier planet.”
