From in vitro to synthetic, lab-grown, cell-based, cultivated and cultured, slaughter-free meat grown from animal cells has been called a myriad of names in its relatively short lifespan. But which term is most appealing, and transparent, to consumers?...
Move over meat and plant-based blends, a new hybrid is in town. Or it will be soon, according to industry experts, who believe ‘the perfect match’ of cell-cultured and plant-based ingredients is headed for regulatory approval and market entry.
From bioreactors to flu vaccines and cell proliferation, the pharmaceutical industry has experience in avian cell production that can help the cultivated meat industry scale, according to Gourmey's CSO Antoine Davydoff.
If the cultivated meat industry were to set the ambitious target of supplying 10% of the global meat market, how much product would be required? How many factories, containing how many bioreactors, would need to be built? And where?
Pressures brought on by the ongoing climate crisis are predicted to drive the price parity and race towards product launches for high-tech dairy alternatives using cell-based technology and precision fermentation, according to a panel of experts.
