Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH), a leader in cultivated meat and 3D bioprinting technology, has further expanded its 3D printing capabilities with the world’s first plant-based, 3D printed shrimps, a new 3D printed seafood analog expertly designed to mimic the authentic texture and flavor of conventional shrimps.

The shrimps were precision-printed on Steakholder Foods’ proprietary DropJet printer, designed for fish and seafood printing, using shrimp-flavored ink developed by Steakholder Foods’ food technology team. It is the latest addition to the Company’s portfolio of printed seafood products to be offered to potential customers, on a plant (analog) or potentially hybrid (combination plant and cultivated) basis, as economies of scale develop to enable price-competitive cell development.

The shrimp market is worth more than USD 60 billion and is projected to continue growing substantially over the coming decade. With 7.6 million tons of shrimp harvested in 2023, Steakholder Foods’ heavy-duty production printing solution aims to provide partners and customers with the means to meet growing demand through high-volume, efficient, and sustainable production, offering a practical and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional shrimp farming.

Arik Kaufman, CEO of Steakholder Foods, said: “By unveiling a second new species of plant-based, 3D-printed seafood this month, we expect to position Steakholder Foods to sell and deliver its first DropJet printer in 2024, offering partners and customers a unique opportunity to benefit from the expanding global seafood market, while making the right kind of impact on the environment.”
