Avant develops patent-pending biotechnology to produce meats without animals. It directly feeds nutrients to animal cells, grows them in a controlled environment, and harvests them after two months. Avant’s technologies can produce different meats. By piloting with fish, it aims to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals on Life Below Water, Responsible Consumption and Production, Good Health and Well-being, and Zero Hunger.

Using Avant’s cell cultivation technology to produce meats, we can save natural resources for the planet's ecosystems and help populations deprived of minimum nutrition. We also reduce waste and public health risks related to raising animals for food.
