CULT is Developing its own Intellectual Property and Patent Portfolio, while  Funding Early-Stage CellAg Ventures as Food Supplies are Challenged and  Prices are Rising Across the World 

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 12, 2022 / CNW /– CULT Food Science Corp. (“CULT”  or the “Company”) (CSE: CULT) (OTC: CULTF) (FRA: LN0), an innovative investment  platform with an exclusive focus on cellular agriculture that is advancing the development of novel  technologies to provide a sustainable, environmental, and ethical solution to the global factory  farming and aquaculture crises, is pleased to spotlight the continuing advancement of technologies  in the cellular agriculture realm. The Company is supporting these advances by investing in the  development of its own intellectual property and patent portfolios, as well as via cellular  agriculture companies around the world that are working to help solve food insecurity concerns to  populations at risk. With fertilizer and food shortages currently increasing in prominence, CULT  management believes that cellular agriculture is a viable solution and that companies producing  cell-based foods are near to making significance improvements in the global food supply chain.  

Fertilizer represents one of a farmer’s main input costs and, with fertilizer prices returning to all time highs, the result is higher food prices and potential food shortages also due to COVID-related  supply chain disruptions. With the added escalation of energy costs and global tensions, the  shortage of fertilizer and increased food prices is expected to continue given that Russia is the  world's largest exporter of fertilizer.1 Therefore, cell-based foods are an attractive solution as they  do not require fertilizer or depend on the weather for crop yields.  

The cellular agriculture industry has grown rapidly in the last 9 years, with new venture capital  funding adding up to over US$9.7 billion in global investments.2 With the growth and support  that the industry is receiving, the Company’s view is that cell-based foods are the future and may  offer the solution to many problems and challenges related to food security and shortages. Cellular  agriculture also has the potential to reduce water consumption, energy use, and greenhouse gases  related to food production, thereby making it a highly beneficial substitute for current farming 

methods.2 CULT continues to invest in companies that are working to produce cell-based foods  using bioreactors that could make food more easily accessible and sustainably produced.  

Management Commentary  

“Cellular agriculture represents a novel pathway towards helping address the challenges we will  continue to face with climate change and other unknown global events. We must take steps to  mitigate the disruptions we see in the food supply chain today, and the disruptions we know are to  come in the future. The IP and technologies CULT Food Science is working to develop seek to  provide the possibility of new models and approaches not just in how we produce our food and  ingredients, but also in how we get our food from our stores, our communities, and even what is  on our plates. The history of agriculture is marked by fundamental shifts in technology, and cellular  agriculture is the next one,” said Lejjy Gafour, Chief Executive Officer of CULT.
