  13. 13. 14 “Adjacent industries” Entry from nearby sectors Beverage companies Food companies Medical supply manufacturer Plant engine- ering firms Effect to nearby sectors Functional & pharmaceuti cal foods Food branding Biomanu facturing Regen. medicine Indoor farms Clean meat industry mind map Culture media Supply chain Cell scaffold Cell line Bioreactor
  14. 14. ←Factors consumers weigh Consumer acceptance Besides taste and price, Safety & Trustbuilding
  15. 15. Cleanness of “Clean Meat”? Bioreactors are kept clean: No bacterial contamination None of these But antibiotics and growth factors are problems to be solved: Neither are recognized food additives
  16. 16. 17 Food regulations (Japan) Clean meat is... Feed Safety Act Drug Safety Act Food Safety Act Food Labeling Act +Assessment by food safety committee? 2018~ req. HACCP standard Consumers Agricultural product? Processed food? Clean meat in identity crisis
  17. 17. 18 Food regulations (US) General background ・New product⇒GRAS or Food Additive Petition ・USDA for meat, FDA for fish, FDA for additives ・Animal feed has whole set of different regulations Precedent of ‘enzymatic additives’ ・Regulatory issues in the use of recombinants for enzymatic additives was raised before. ・Whole industry collaborated to get over the issue. Other considerations ・Quicker to come up with its own toxicity test results ・Enzymatic additive is still distant as “a precedent”. ・May need a lobby to reach both FDA and USDA In setting a regulatory precedent for cellular agriculture products, “cultured fish meat as additive” is probably the most accessible. #Discussion at New Harvest 2017, NYC, 12.Oct.2017
  18. 18. “Trustbuilding” Resulted in widespread accusation and allegations of : “Technology being used for corporate profit than social good” “Public mistrust due to technological secrecy”
  19. 19. 20 -Meat recipe on Pixiv and Comiket -Kids doing it for summer project -Problems tackled by artists, hobbyists and citizen scientists -Anyone can join & take an initiative Radical transparency
  20. 20. 21 Demonstration video online
  21. 21. IP for “How to scale” How to make ⇒ Open How to scale ⇒ Proprietary Numberindemand Level of personalization Product dev. Citizen Science domain Business domain and others
  22. 22. 23 Academia hints the way Citizens act and set the direction Businesses scale and deliver “Democratized cellular agriculture”
  23. 23. Takeaways and acknowledgements 24 Clean meat and cellular agriculture are on its way. Safety and trustbuilding are necessary for consumer acceptance. Shojinmeat Project proposes “radical transparency” based on citizen scientist initiatives. And Everyone in Shojinmeat Project!!
