The US based, BioCraft Pet Nutrition, previously known as Because Animals, is positioning itself to tap into the more than $120-billion global pet-food market where the traditional dog's breakfast meets cultivated mouse meat.
With an estimated 480-million domestic dogs and approaching 400-million cat population the market is wide open for the company's cultivated meat, a game-changing solution about to transform animal pet food into a clean, sustainable, and wholesome choice.
Traditional pet food production has long been plagued by recalls due to bacterial and chemical contamination. The use of antibiotics in unsanitary farming conditions contributes to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, putting pets at risk. Biocraft says it's time to elevate pet nutrition with a safe and responsible alternative.
The good news too is the prospect of a sanitised cultivated mouse meat adding a completely new dimension to the cat food market place.
'We are developing a range of cultured meat ingredients, including ancestral prey options that are species specific such as mouse for cats', says Biocraft.
'Cultivated meat offers the ultimate solution, providing a clean and sustainable option for our furry family members. Produced in a controlled and sterile environment, it eliminates bacterial contaminants, ensuring the highest safety standards', says Biocraft.
'BioCraft, is committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation in cultivated meat production. Powered by cutting-edge bio-technology, it utilises a proprietary blend of carefully selected food-grade botanical ingredients to provide optimal nutrition for dogs and cats'.
Dr. Shannon Falconer, CEO of Biocraft/Because Animals, passionately emphasises the importance of cultivated meat.
'Cultured meat is what our customers and future manufacturing partners have been asking us for, and this is what we're prioritising. The company's strength is our scientific prowess, and since scientific innovation is key to bringing cultured meat to market, we made the decision to apply laser focus to achieving that feat and to divest ourselves of any and all non-core assets that were not required to realise that objective', says Dr Falconer.
Cultivated meat is free from antibiotics, growth-promoting steroid hormones, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It embodies a natural, sustainable, and nourishing choice for pet owners who prioritise the well-being of their furry companions.

** Wild mouse meat is not the best for kitty because of the following:
Hantavirus is a potentially severe respiratory disease transmitted through contact with infected rodents, including mice. It can cause symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, coughing, and, in some cases, lead to more serious conditions like Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) or Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome (HFRS).
Salmonellosis is a bacterial infection caused by Salmonella bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal tracts of wild animals, including mice. Consumption of contaminated mouse meat can lead to symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, and vomiting.
Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection caused by the Leptospira bacteria. Wild mice can be carriers of this bacteria, and exposure to their meat or urine can lead to infection. Leptospirosis can cause symptoms ranging from mild flu-like symptoms to severe conditions affecting the liver, kidneys, and other organs.
Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCMV) is a viral infection commonly found in rodents, including mice. It can be transmitted to humans through contact with mouse urine, droppings, or saliva. Symptoms may include fever, headache, muscle aches, nausea, and in rare cases, more severe neurological complications.
Rat-Bite Fever: Although more commonly associated with rats, wild mice can also carry the bacteria responsible for rat-bite fever. This bacterial infection can be transmitted through bites, scratches, or contact with contaminated mouse meat, leading to flu-like symptoms, joint pain, and skin rashes.
