[🛳️ Seawith's Voyage Report] Part3. Urban meat farm: The farm 🌱
May 17, 2023
Hello! Today, in the third edition of Seawith's journey, I would like to introduce one of Seawith's brands called 'The Farm.'
Are you aware of the numerous environmental requirements involved in traditional meat production through conventional slaughtering methods? It requires large spaces for animal husbandry, as well as additional facilities for waste and sewage treatment, and slaughterhouses. These spaces not only occupy vast areas of land but also create an environment that is far from human-friendly. It is difficult to imagine living spaces and livestock farms existing side by side.
However, cultured meat, which is produced by growing cells, only requires clean cultivation facilities. That's why we always emphasize that cultured meat can be produced even in urban areas. Furthermore, if we adopt a vertical farming approach, stacking cultivation facilities on the same footprint, it theoretically allows us to continuously increase meat production within the same space.
We wanted to emphasize the significance of these cultured meat production facilities and promote the advantages of cultured meat. Hence, we decided to name our unique urban cultured meat production facility 'The Farm.' It signifies the growth of cells, similar to sowing seeds and harvesting fruits. Additionally, since it is a space where animal cells grow, the term 'farm' was deemed appropriate.
Currently, our Seawith research lab operates the first-ever 'The Farm' as a cultured meat production facility. Although there is only one location at the moment, we plan to expand the urban farm, 'The Farm,' in the future, potentially in the form of restaurants or stores. 'The Farm' will not only contribute to cost savings in distribution and storage but also serve as a hub for providing fresh cultured meat to consumers rapidly.
In the future, we hope that the concept of fresh meat expands beyond the idea of "freshly delivered meat from distant slaughterhouses" to include "meat grown and freshly cultured in front of your home at 'The Farm'." That would be fantastic!
To conclude today's journal entry, let's summarize it as "The place where Seawith's Welldone is created is the urban farm, 'The Farm.'" Thank you. Bon Voyage!
