FoodTech company Bluu Seafood (previously Bluu Biosciences) is the first company in Europe to specialise in the commercial production of cell-based fish. As a pioneer at the interface of biotechnology and food technology, Bluu Seafood is competing to produce healthy, sustainable and delicious fish products from cell cultures. The aim is to produce fish products in a sustainable and cost-efficient way and thus make a significant contribution to securing the future supply of animal protein for mankind.
FoodTech, based in Berlin with scientific facilities in Lübeck, was founded in 2020 by Dr Sebastian Rakers and Simon Fabich with an expert team of marine biologists, cell biologists, tissue engineers as well as food engineers. In April 2021, entrepreneur and PhD molecular biologist Dr Christian Dammann joined the management team as Chief Operating Officer. In research & development, Bluu Seafood cooperates closely with the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Marine Biotechnology and Cell Engineering (EMB; now Fraunhofer IMTE) in Lübeck and has a state-of-the-art R&D environment.
