The food industry is undergoing a major transformation as companies seek to reduce the environmental impact of meat production and create a sustainable food system. Against this backdrop, cellular agriculture has emerged as a core platform to produce animal products without the need for traditional livestock farming methods. This innovative approach is gaining traction among companies, resulting in posting jobs around cellular agriculture, observes GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

An analysis of GlobalData’s Job Analytics Database reveals that companies looking for experienced professionals around cellular agriculture are Vitrolabs Inc, Wild Type Inc, and Tessenderlo Group NV.

Sherla Sriprada, Business Fundamentals Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “With cellular agriculture related job postings, companies seem to be focusing on improving the physicochemical, sensory, and functional properties of cultivated seafood products, new generations of proteins, and sustainable meat, among others.”

Wild Type Inc is hiring for “Director of Product Development,” which looks to improve the physicochemical, sensory, and functional properties of cultivated seafood products. Furthermore, the role also requires experience in product development to create the next generation of seafoods using cellular agriculture technologies.

Tessenderlo Group NV’s “Industrial Protein Biotechnologist” role is to identify the best available alternative protein and peptide technologies. This requires a thorough understanding of the principles and application of fermentation and cellular agriculture.

Eat JUST, Inc.’s “Director, Food Safety & Quality” role supports GOOD Meat division operations, which are focused on cellular agriculture. Another role of Vitrolabs Inc’s “Scientist, Cell Line Engineering” looks at analyzing the current cell lines to understand limitations or areas of improvement in cellular agriculture and experience in cell line development.

Maple Leaf Foods Inc is hiring for “Marketing Manager – Foodservice” and the role entails assisting with the development of both short-term and long-term strategic plans for RWA in Canada and ABF in the US, as well as assisting the retail sustainable meats team in identifying new RWA and ABF opportunities by leveraging the sustainability platform.

Sriprada concludes: “Cellular agriculture is a new technology that has significant implications for alternative food production in the future. As a result, employment rate is anticipated to increase further.”
