Qatar Free Zones Authority (QFZA) announced a partnership with Eat Just, Inc, a company that applies cutting-edge science and technology to create healthier, more sustainable foods, and Doha Venture Capital (DVC), to build the first-ever cultivated meat facility in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) region.
The regional hub will be located in the Umm Alhoul Free Zone, one of two free zones overseen and regulated by QFZA, with direct access to Hamad Port.
The hub will comprise a large-scale facility for Eat Just’s “GOOD Meat division”, which created the world’s first-to-market meat made from animal cells. This will be the first facility in the protein innovation space in QFZs and the Gulf, as QFZA is focused on bringing together leading global companies using innovative technologies to build a more sustainable future.
