UBL has also Recently Been Featured in TechCrunch Regarding its Hardware to Scale Cultivated Meat from Lab to Table  

Vancouver, British Columbia, April 28, 2022 / CNW /– CULT Food Science Corp. (“CULT” or the  “Company”) (CSE: CULT) (OTC: CULTF) (FRA: LN0), 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 is has made a strategic investment into Unicorn Biotechnologies Limited  (“UBL”). The investment was part of an oversubscribed round of financing led by Acequia Capital. Located  in Cambridge, United Kingdom, UBL is a biotech company developing a cell manufacturing system that  aims to significantly reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of the production of animal cell products.  

Additionally, on April 21, 2022 UBL was featured in TechCrunch, which is a leading online technology  publication, in an article entitled “Unicorn Bio is building the hardware to scale cultivated meat from lab  to table”. CULT was also named in the piece, which was focused on UBL’s capital raise to turn its prototype  bioreactor into a commercial product.

The cost, time, and manual labour associated with cell-based adherent manufacturing have been  significant hurdles thus far for the cellular agriculture and cell therapy industries, as well as for medical  research. Currently, it takes over 40 hours of manual labour per production batch, approximately three  years to scale production processes to industrial levels and costs a significant amount of capital for large 

scale manufacturing systems to be produced. UBL is working to solve these problems by building better  bioreactors to power the cell-based manufacturing revolution for cultivated meat.  

To achieve its goals, UBL has developed a solution using industry-leading and energy-efficient technology.  Its fit-for-purpose, high-density adherent cell manufacturing system improves process development  timelines by 90%, achieves a 10-fold cost reduction and lowers the labour component by 75% through  automated workflows as compared to current processes. CULT’s investment will support the ongoing  development and commercialization of UBL’s solution, which is positioned to aid in the growth of the  global cellular agriculture industry. 

A bioreactor is a vessel for growing organisms like animal cells, under controlled conditions by providing  the same temperature, pH and oxygen levels. It is an apparatus, typically cylindrical and stainless steel in  nature and ranging in volume from a few litres to several cubic meters, that maintains a consistent  environment by constantly stirring its contents.

‍ A bioreactor is critical in the cellular agriculture process  in order to grow animal cells sustainably and affordably. Ultimately, bioreactors allow for cells to grow in  a timely manner and require little manual labour to operate.  

Management Commentary  

“CULT is excited to add its investment in UBL to its cellular agriculture ecosystem. We are keenly  interested in the growth trajectory of UBL based on the early prospects of its potentially game-changing  new bioreactor solution,” said Lejjy Gafour, Chief Executive Officer of CULT. “The cellular agriculture  industry is working hard to develop economic and sustainable solutions to feed the planet’s growing  population, reduce emissions and ultimately make the world a better place. I am confident that our  investment in UBL is helping to achieve that goal and we look forward to collaborating with the UBL team  as part of our growing ecosystem,” added Mr. Gafour.
