Nutreco announced Thursday it is acquiring a minority share in Scotland-based Roslin Technologies as part of the company’s recently closed series A funding round.

Roslin Technologies is a provider of animal cell lines to the emerging cultivated meat sector. The £11 million (€12.7 million/$12.4 million) funding round is intended to fuel the its next wave of growth.

This latest investment gives Nutreco a stake in another link of the developing cultivated protein supply chain.
