Remilk to Receive Israel’s First Market Approval For a Cell Ag Protein

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Wednesday that an Israeli food tech startup was about to receive the green light to produce animal-free milk proteins, reports The Times of Israel.

The PM did not name which food tech company would receive Israel’s first market approval for a cellular agriculture protein in the coming days. However, Tech12 reported Remilk as the permit receiver.

Founded in 2019, Remilk has raised over $120 million since its establishment. The company leverages precision fermentation and microbes to produce milk proteins, claiming they are chemically identical to those found in cow’s milk. These microbial proteins can make animal-free dairy without lactose, cholesterol, growth hormones, and antibiotics. They will appeal to vegans, flexitarians, and climate consumers. 

Working with regulators

Last year, Remilk achieved several milestones, with regulatory approvals from Singapore and the US Food and Drug Administration regarding the safety of its animal-free whey. Remilk’s protein launched with General Mill’s bran Bold Cultr introducing a line of cream cheese in Minnesota, USA, last year (General Mills shut down Bold Cultr this February).

Remilk, as a supplier of raw materials, contracts with major food companies worldwide for production and distribution purposes. It has recently made a partnership with Terra in Israel, reports Tech12.

Aviv Wolff, CEO and co-founder of Remilk, commented after obtaining self-affirmed GRAS  in the US: “We are working diligently with regulators around the globe to be able to offer Remilk-made products to consumers in other countries.”

Leading food tech innovation

The announcement took place on Wednesday evening when the PM visited Steakholder Foods, a Rehovot-based cultivated meat company. During the visit, he explored the latest advancements in cultivated meat and 3D bio-printing and tasted 3D-printed cultivated fish and cultivated meat at the food tech company’s facility.

At the event, the Prime Minister said Israel is a global leader in alternative protein production, citing the country’s recently cultivated fish and cultivated meat production. He further stated that the government is committed to continuing its leadership in this area and that new permits and heights are expected soon.

Israel ranked second behind the US in alternative protein investments in 2022, with local startups in the field raising a total of $454 million, according to a Good Food Institute (GFI) Israel report. 

Earlier this year, the Israel Innovation Authority announced plans to build an R&D hub for fermentation technology as part of a broader effort to invest in food tech — declared one of the top five new national priorities for the next five years.

Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods, said: “As Israel continues to lead the way in food innovation, today’s visit by the Prime Minister of Israel is a testament to the importance of our technology and the incredible potential it holds for the future. We were honored to offer Mr. Netanyahu the opportunity to taste and witness the future of food.”

Israeli Co. Steakholder Foods 3D Bio-Prints the “World’s First” Whole Fillet Cultivated Fish

3D-printed cultivated meat company Steakholder Foods (NASDAQ: STKH), formerly MeaTech 3D, has announced the world’s first 3D bio-printed cultivated fish product. The recently developed prototype was a ready-to-cook grouper fillet, printed with customized bio-inks utilizing grouper cells provided by Umami Meats.

Backed by a grant from the Singapore-Israel Industrial R&D Foundation (SIIRD), Umami Meats and Steakholder Foods work to develop a scalable process for producing structured cultivated fish products using Steakholder Foods’ proprietary 3D bio-printing technology and customized bio-inks. This 3D fish printing represents a successful and meaningful milestone in their partnership.

Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods, said: “We’re excited to be working with Umami Meats to develop 3D-printed structured fish products that have the same great taste and texture as traditionally caught fish, without harming the environment.”

The world’s first cultivated fish fillet

Steakholder Foods celebrated this achievement by hosting a tasting event at its Israel facilities. At a “grouper fish chef’s table,” Israeli and Singaporean-style signature fish dishes prepared by the company’s chef, Moran Lidor, were available for tasting. 

Besides Mihir Pershad, CEO of Umami Meats, and other personalities, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Steakholder Foods’ laboratory, where he witnessed the process of 3D-printing and sampled the cultivated fish, becoming the first PM to taste the product.

“We are delighted to have produced the world’s first whole fillet cultivated fish in partnership with Steakholder Foods. In this first tasting, we showcased a cultivated product that flakes, tastes and melts in your mouth exactly like excellent fish should. In the coming months, we intend to announce our plans for bringing this world-class cultivated fish to the market,” commented Mihir Pershad, CEO of Umami Meats.

Expanding collaborations

After receiving the grouper’s fish cells from Umami Meats, Steakholder Foods says its team worked to customize its bio-inks for a grouper prototype with optimized taste and texture. The Israeli food-tech claims its patent-pending technology enables it to replicate the flaky texture of cooked fish in a product after printing.

In a statement, the company said that being able to customize its bio-inks to external cell lines is a significant step towards commercializing its 3D bioprinter. It proves that its platform can produce structured hybrid and cultivated products of various species, opening the doors for collaborations with other industry players.

“Having created a customized bio-ink that works effectively with Umami’s cells and optimized the taste and texture to meet the high standards of consumers, we anticipate expanding our collaborations to a greater variety of species with additional partners,” added Kaufman.

Israel as a ‘Silicon Valley’ for Automotive Technology

The symbol of Israel’s brief flirtation with automotive manufacturing during the 1960s and 1970s was considered a delicacy by the country’s camels. 

While the story of hungry camels gnawing on cars was just a rumour, the first “blue and white” carmaker shuttered its manufacturing operations in 1981. Today, the modest Israeli vehicle manufacturing industry serves primarily military purposes.  

With more than 500 transportation start-ups; innovation hubs established by many of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers; and soaring investment, Israel has truly secured its place as a veritable driving force of automotive innovation.

Israel’s automotive pioneering spirit, Intel’s acquisition of Jerusalem-based vision Technology start-up Mobileye for $15.3 billion in 2017 demonstrated the country’s potential to succeed. 

Several automakers like Ford, Renault, Nissan, and General Motors have chosen Israel for their Research Centre, making the small market a Tech hotbed for Automotive Technology.

Vehicle manufacturers like BMW and Hyundai and Auto component makers like BOSCH and Lear have opened their R&D centres. Several global technology companies including Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and Samsung too came forward.

ASX trading is now available on Israel’s leading FinTech platform: eToro with 0% Commission – here’s how to get started

eToro, the world’s leading social trading platform, has recently made stocks listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) available for users to trade with  0% commission – opening up a whole new raft of opportunities for those wanting to dive into the Australian market.

To take advantage of a stock market that is growing in popularity with investors, eToro has made 77 ASX shares available for the public to trade, including some of the country’s largest companies like Qantas (ASX: QAN), Commonwealth Bank (ASX: CBA) and Fortescue Metals (ASX: FMG). 

Much like trading US stocks and other assets, the ASX lets traders buy or sell a share in a publicly traded company.

For those familiar with eToro, the trading process is virtually the same as any other asset on the platform. The difference with ASX is the diversity of the exchange’s landscape of major companies.

Many eToro users might already have a well-rounded portfolio comprising global stocks and other assets like cryptocurrencies and ETFs, so why consider trading ASX stocks?

According to eToro market analyst Josh Gilbert, access to the ASX opens trader portfolios up to greater diversification – particularly those wanting to look outside of the tech-heavy US indices.

“Australian companies are leaders in energy and commodities, with raw resources and favourable trade relationships making it an attractive investment destination for investors,” Gilbert said. 

“The Australian economy has also demonstrated a high level of resilience compared to most other economies during economic crises.”

Looking at the ASX 200 – an index that tracks the movements of the largest 200 companies on the ASX – supports Gilbert’s comments. Of the 200, nearly one third of the companies are those in the financial sector (like Commonwealth Bank (ASX: CBA) and National Australia Bank (ASX: NAB)), while the mining and resources sector is the second largest and includes companies such as BHP Group (ASX: BHP) and Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest-founded mining giant Fortescue Metals Group (ASX: FMG).

According to Gilbert, the Australian market is also well-established as being one that pays dividends.

“Dividends have contributed 53 per cent of returns over the 121 years to 2021 compared to just 42 per cent in the US and the ASX is one of the highest yielding major indices globally. On top of this, the ASX200 has a large weighting towards finance and materials, making up over 50 per cent of the index,” Gilbert said.

“This is vastly different from the S&P500, where these two sectors only account for 13 per cent of the index.”

Further, the ASX may provide advantages over US stocks during the current bear market conditions, considering the large amount of ‘recession proof’ stocks in sectors like consumer staples, healthcare and gold – for example, Coles (ASX: COL), CSL (ASX: CSL) and Newcrest Mining (ASX: NCM).

For those unfamiliar with the ASX, the list of companies that sit in the ASX 100 is a good place to start to find out the heavy hitters in the Australian market. However, eToro users should do research before trading – be it via reading financial news publications or monitoring the price movement via eToro’s website and app platforms.

eToro provides various research tools to help investors when analysing investments – for example, investors can see each stock’s price action via charts, revenues and margins, plus dividend yield.

And for those who want to diversify without the hassle of learning about individual companies, eToro has also launched a new AussieEconomy Smart Portfolio which bundles a bunch of ASX listed stocks into one managed package.

This includes stocks in a range of sectors, including mining, oil & gas, financials, healthcare, software and chemicals. Holdings include BHP Billiton (ASX: BHP), National Australia Bank (ASX: NAB), Woodside Energy Group (ASX: WDS) and more.

“We know that Aussie investors have a strong home bias, with 65% currently invested or planning to invest in Australian equities. This new portfolio provides an accessible way for Australian retail investors to get exposure to their leading, home-grown companies,” Gilbert said.

eToro’s Smart Portfolios offer investors exposure to various market themes. Bundling together several assets under a defined methodology and employing a passive investment approach, eToro’s Smart Portfolios are long-term investment solutions that offer diversification with no management fees.
