Black & Veatch Designs First-of-a-Kind Advanced R&D Facility for Cultivated Seafood in Singapore

  (SINGAPORE, 12/17/2021)

Shiok Meats, Southeast Asia’s first cultivated seafood and meat company and the world’s first cultivated crustacean company, announced the official opening of their ‘Mini’-Plant located at their Singapore headquarters in Innovate 360. 

Black & Veatch collaborated with Shiok Meats for the conceptual design and layout of their first-of-a-kind advanced research and development facility for cultivated seafood, officially opened by Singapore’s Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, Ms. Grace Fu in November.

The new facility will help Shiok Meats, the world’s first cultivated crustacean company, scale-up production of cell-based crustacean meat products, targeting commercialization by 2023.

Dr Sandhya Sriram (Group CEO & Chairman) (R) and Dr Ka Yi Ling (CTO) (L) are the co-founders of Shiok Meats.

“Building the Mini Plant is a big milestone for us. Our production facility, which is due in the next 18 months, will be an extension of this Mini Plant in terms of engineering design and foundation. This new facility allows us to scale the cultivated seafood production gradually and strategically to ensure a comprehensive manufacturing model and top-notch products,” said Dr. Sandhya Sriram, Group CEO & Co-founder, Shiok Meats.

We’re excited to support Shiok Meats in their scale-up efforts to create better and more sustainable food by leveraging biotechnology to enhance global food security.”
