About JACA

JACA aims to contribute to key issues in Japan, such as food security and sustainability, by collecting information, as well as establishing and executing strategies and measures on how Japan should face growing cellular agriculture. Not only we are active domestically, but also we are to contribute to the international discussion by sharing our progress in one of the key areas globally.

Our philosophy

JACA will objectively analyze the potential of cellular agriculture, study and propose a system that will contribute to the public interest in Japan, and share the progress consensus building in Japan in international forums to contribute to the international discussion.

We aim to make better proposals on how Japan should deal with cellular agriculture by exchanging opinions not only with those involved in the cellular agriculture industry (development or investment) but also with consumers and people in industries other than cellular agriculture.
