BlueNalu’s mission is to be the global leader in cell-cultured seafood.

Nomad Foods and BlueNalu Collaborate to Introduce Cell-Cultured Seafood in Europe

  (UNITED STATES, 9/13/2021)

Nomad Foods, Europe’s leading frozen food company and BlueNalu,2 a leading innovative food company developing a variety of seafood products directly from fish cells, have agreed to explore the introduction of cell-cultured seafood in Europe 1, where demand for sustainably produced, healthy seafood products continues to grow. Europe is the largest importer of seafood in the world due to high consumption rates, with EU citizens consuming more than three times as much as they produce.3

BlueNalu is a pioneer in creating whole muscle, cell-cultured seafood products.

The agreement represents the first of its kind in Europe between a consumer packaged goods company and a cell-cultured seafood company, and underpins Nomad Foods’ commitment to sustainable growth through the development and scaling of emerging food technologies. The agreement also signifies a mutual interest in the commercialization of cell-cultured seafood in Europe to help meet rising demand and support wider efforts to safeguard the long-term availability of quality, affordable seafood that is healthy for people and sustainable for the planet. It includes a collaboration to conduct market research and identify consumer insights, assess regulatory requirements, and explore new business and product opportunities that would be unlocked by the introduction of cell-cultured seafood throughout Europe.

Stéfan Descheemaeker, Chief Executive Officer, Nomad Foods, said: “The food industry is at a transformational moment as consumer demand for nutritious, high-quality food is growing, the importance of sustainability has never been more apparent, and the role of technology in delivering these needs is accelerating.

“We are at the forefront of a generational shift towards healthier, more sustainable eating and are delighted to announce our collaboration with BlueNalu. Their breakthrough technology in cell-cultured seafood perfectly aligns with our purpose and will enable us to continue to introduce innovative and great tasting seafood products that are good for people, good for the planet and accessible to all.”

Lou Cooperhouse, President and Chief Executive Officer, BlueNalu, said: “As the latest IPCC report4 on the climate crisis demonstrates, the decisions we make over the next decade will have a profound impact on life on this planet for generations to come.

“We are excited by the opportunity to collaborate with Nomad Foods, which has revered, market- leading brands such as Birds Eye, Findus and iglo, to accelerate our market strategy in Europe. With this announcement, BlueNalu is well-positioned to bring our leading-edge innovation into Europe in the coming years, which complements our existing collaborations in Asia and North America.”

1 Europe includes the UK, which is Nomad Foods largest market.

2 BlueNalu’s non-GMO technology platform is designed to produce a wide array of seafood products from a variety of species in order to meet consumer demand and supplement gaps in supply in each region where it goes to market. BlueNalu has implemented a species selection strategy that complements the current seafood supply chain, focusing on fish species that are typically imported, difficult to farm-raise, are overfished or non-sustainable, and/or contain higher levels of environmental contaminants. Cell-cultured seafood has the potential to democratize sustainable, nutritious seafood, minimize food waste, improve transparency, and support the biodiversity in the ocean. BlueNalu’s cell-cultured seafood products could offer a healthy, regenerative, consistent, and predictable seafood solution that is traceable, secure, and safe.

BlueNalu’s business strategy is to partner with leading multinational companies on market research, regulatory affairs, product design and development, manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution, with an aim to efficiently and effectively bring BlueNalu’s branded cell-cultured seafood products to consumers worldwide. This announcement with Nomad Foods follows additional collaborations announced earlier by BlueNalu, including agreements with Pulmuone Co, Ltd. in South Korea, Sumitomo Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation in Japan, and Thai Union in Thailand.

BlueNalu isolates living cells from fish tissue, then placed into culture media for proliferation, and assembled into fresh and frozen seafood products.
