MeaTech 3D Ltd. (NASDAQ:MITC) ("MeaTech"), an international deep-tech food company at the forefront of the cultured meat industry, is pleased to announce that it has received its first patent out of several that are currently pending. The patent, granted by IP Australia, is based on the company's development of systems and methods to apply external forces to muscle tissue that result in the development of high-quality complex structured meat.

One of the main challenges of producing structured meat is to enable the muscle tissue to mature with an enhanced fibrous texture that results in a mouthfeel with the right elasticity, density and taste. "Our patented systems and methods strengthen and enhance cultured muscle tissues in a way that mimics how a cow's muscles are developed while it walks and grazes," said Dan Kozlovski, MeaTech's Chief Technology Officer.
