Thai Union Group, a world’s seafood leader company, has announced the investment in BlueNalu, a cell-based seafood products start-up.
Founded in 2018, BlueNalu develops cell-based seafood, an innovative way to produce fish products directly from the cells of fish, where taste, texture, and nutritional of the products do not vary in the process.

BlueNalu and its experienced team is at the forefront of cell-based seafood technology, with strong process capabilities to scale-up seafood in a sustainable manner. We are excited to work with them and look forward to exploring collaboration opportunities,” said Thiraphong Chansiri, President and CEO of Thai Union.
Lou Cooperhouse, BlueNalu’s co-founder, President and CEO said: “Thai Union’s investment in BlueNalu represents an investment in the future of food and their commitment to innovation. We look forward to exploring various ways in which we will complement Thai Union’s position as one of the largest seafood operators globally.”
