Global animal nutrition firm Nutreco will is extending its partnership with lab-grown seafood company BlueNalu, as it scales up its cell-cultured seafood manufacturing, as part of a new agreement the companies signed this month.

The deal continues a partnership that has been in place since 2019.

The companies said they are aiming to bring down the cost of cell feed and establish specifications and metrics for "certain raw materials necessary to produce BlueNalu’s proprietary cell-cultured seafood products."

BlueNalu is aiming to create a cell-cultured version of bluefin tuna.
