Printed Cellulose Burgers: Soon at a Restaurant Near You!Israeli restaurant chain BBB has partnered with 3D vegan burger printing company SavorEat.
SavorEat’s technology was developed by Oded Shoseyov, a professor of plant molecular biology, protein engineering and nano-biotechnology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and one of SavorEat’s co-founders. In an interview with Calcalist held in April 2018, Shoseyov said that the company was about 18-24 months away from being market-ready. At that time, a prototype of the burger-printing machine took 10 minutes to print a single burger, and the company was working to cut the printing time down to three minutes.
Racheli Vizman, co-founder and CEO of SavorEat, told Calcalist now that the partnership is an opportunity to speed up and maximize development and promote the company’s goal of entering the restaurant industry. “We are planning to rely on BBB’s experience in making burgers as well as in running a restaurant chain,” Vizman said.
