CULT Food Science Invests in Cell-Based Coffee Venture

VANCOUVER, BC, - CULT Food Science Corp. ("CULT" or the "Company") , An innovative 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 and aquaculture crises, is pleased to announce that it made a strategic investment into Compound Foods ("Compound") on June 3, 2022. Based in San Francisco, California, Compound is working to produce a cell-based coffee alternative that tastes, smells and looks just like traditional coffee. CULT is aligned with Compound in its quest to increase global food security by providing more stability to the production of key food commodities like coffee.

The coffee industry is worth billions of dollars, but it is known to cause many environmental and ecological problems. It is estimated that for every cup of coffee that is consumed, one square inch of rainforest is destroyed.Chemical buildup in soils and rainforest canopy loss are consequences of mass coffee production, which lead to chemical runoff that pollutes rivers and land, and also cause aquatic wildlife to die and arable land to degrade.With such a negative impact on the environment, the quest for alternative methods of coffee production has begun. Accordingly, Compound and its pursuit of the development of cell-based coffee have emerged to address climate change and ethical coffee farming practices.
