The Shojinmeat project is an open-source, non-profit, researchcitizen groupscience community interested in DIY bio cellular agriculture and the development of cultured meats. Cultured meat is grown from in vitro animal cell-cultures rather than livestock farming. The shojinmeat project was founded by Yuki Hanyu in 20152014 and is based in Tokyo, Japan. The project is named after "shojin ryori" a Japanese Buddhist cuisine and reflects various values such as the commitment to nonviolence against animals and an avoidance of waste.

Integriculture uses a "Coculture" approach for producing their cellular agricultural products. They have made a cell culturing system that grows muscles cells and liver cells in a connected bioreactor. The liver cells are capable of producing growth factors needed by the muscle cells, and the transfer of the growth factors to the muscle cells is taken care of by Integriculture's coculture bioreactor. These coculturing techniques allows Integriculture to significantly lower the cost of producing clean meat using cellular agricultural techniques.  Coculturing is a major part of the "Culnet System" being employed by Integriculture for the large scale management of cell cultures at industrial scales. Integriculture plans on producing culturednon-food meatcellular agriculture products in 2020 at their first commercial plant in Tokyo.
