CULT Food Science (CULT) CEO Lejjy Gafour has been appointed to the board of directors of New Harvest Canada.

New Harvest is a non-profit research institute that supports open, public cultured meat research.

Founded in 2004, New Harvest is one of the world’s longest-running organizations dedicated to advancing the field of cellular agriculture.

The appointment follows the launch of “OpenCellAg” as a cellular agriculture network of excellence in collaboration with New Harvest and other partners to advance foundational knowledge for the cellular agriculture industry.

Gafour is concerned about the plant and how climate change has impacted people worldwide. “We must advance knowledge to better support the industry on all fronts as we begin to suffer the real effects of climate change,” added Lejjy Gafour, Chief Executive Officer of CULT.

“There is incredible potential for cellular agriculture in Canada. Thus we must begin to build a values-aligned, action-oriented board of directors for New Harvest,” added Isha Datar, Executive Director of New Harvest.

New Harvest supports ground-breaking research reinventing how we make animal products—without animals.

Areas of focus for the company include talent development, bridging stakeholders, infrastructure development, and supporting high-risk, high-payoff ideas for the cellular agriculture industry.

CULT Food Science is an investment platform with an exclusive focus on cellular agriculture that is advancing the development of novel technologies to provide a sustainable, environmental, and ethical solution to the global factory farming crisis.

CULT Food Science Corp. (CULT) is down 13.33 per cent, trading at C$0.07 at 2:41 pm EST.
