HAIFA, Israel, March 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pluri Inc. (Nasdaq:PLUR) (TASE:PLUR) ("Pluri" or "the Company"), a leading biotechnology company that transforms cells into solutions that promote global wellbeing and sustainability, today addressed the price volatility challenge detailed in the International Coffee Organization’s (ICO) 2024 Market Report (the “Report”) According to the Report, one of the factors creating price volatility is the erratic weather conditions across the globe; from frost in Brazil in 2021 to the El Niño phenomenon expected to worsen heatwaves in Vietnam in 2024. Price instability and cost increases will impact coffee drinkers worldwide, as more than 2 billion cups of coffee are drunk each day, 400 million of them by Americans.

Pluri’s cell-based coffee aims to reduce price instability by moving coffee production into the lab, eliminating the effect of climate change and adverse weather conditions. Pluri recently announced the launch of its cell-based coffee, its proprietary cultured coffee product business, part of its PluriAgtech vertical, addressing the $130 billion coffee industry. The Company’s cell production method grows coffee quickly and reliably in an environmentally sustainable, cost-effective, tightly controlled fully automated manufacturing process that is highly scalable. Pluri’s cell-based coffee is estimated to slash water usage by 98% throughout the entire supply chain and reduce farmland usage by 95% as compared to traditional growing methods.
