The Ochakov Food Ingredients Plant (OKPI) produced a 40-gram “meatloaf” after three experiments carried out over two years, the Moscow-based lab said in a press release cited by Interfax.“From our point of view, laboratory meat production has the highest ethical significance for modern society, since we can avoid the slaughter of living creatures to obtain meat for food,” Nikolai Shimanovsky, a molecular pharmacologist and the project’s curator, said in the press release.The meat, which was grown using the muscle tissue of an Aberdeen Angus calf, cost 900,000 rubles ($14,000) to produce, the lab said.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Alba, I am studying a master’s degree in nutrition and health. I am currently working on my final master’s project. This proyect is about nutritional composition of cultivated meat. This is why I am writing to you. I would really appreciate if you could provide me with the nutritional information of the cultivated meat that you manufacture in your company.
    Thanks you for your help in advance.


    1. Hello,
      You should notice that HCS Pharma is not a company focused in cultivated meat but works in the Scalable-Meat European project as medium provider.
