Roslin Technologies

Roslin Tech is an ambitious, cutting‐edge biotech company focused on food and agriculture. Our mission to advance disruptive biotechnologies to improve how we produce proteins. We envision a world where everyone has access to affordable, nutritious, and responsibly produced protein.

The shift towards cultivated meat is accelerating, and it all starts with the cells. Our work as a cell line provider, using ground-breaking technology, is unique in the industry. Our Animal Cells play a key role in bringing the future of cultivated meat closer to reality.

Our offices and labs are based at the Roslin Innovation Centre in Edinburgh. To complement our own internal capabilities, we have privileged access to experts and intellectual property from the world-famous Roslin Institute, which is co-located on the Easter Bush Campus. Together with our partners, we commercialise our cells and make protein production more sustainable.

To make cultivated meat, cells need to grow in culture at scale. This is a new and innovative area where we strive to be global leaders.
