  • Forsea tasting event in Restaurant 'a' - credits Liran Maimon for Forsea Foods

Cultivated seafood start-up Forsea Foods Ltd. put its cell-cultivated freshwater eel unagi creation to the test—the taste test, that is. The cultivated seafood start-up hosted an official tasting of its cultured freshwater eel at the chic Tel-Aviv restaurant ‘a’ and welcomed an intimate gathering of 40 guests. The exclusive group included investors, journalists, and key opinion leaders in the food industry, as well as representatives from the Japanese embassy and various Japanese food  companies based in Israel.

We love eel and the fact that we better can’t eat it due to the fact it’s an endangered species, is such a pity. That’s why we love the idea of cell-cultivated eel unagi! Forsea Foods thinks that its debut product will be primed for commercial roll-out by 2026 and is currently forging connections with strategic partners in Japan. More details in this article and in the article we wrote about a tasting in Japan of the same eel in January 2024!
