Hello, nice to meet you for this first official edition!
Note that FAO and WHO have shown a preference for the term “cell-based food” in their recent report, which is not the position of the majority of the companies in the sector. It seems trivial, but naming products is a very important step to the market. We have seen many “battles” these past months, mainly in the USA, to allow or to ban the use of “meat” for alternative proteins products. This is a critical part of regulations to follow.
Companies continue to grow and Mosa Meat announced the building of his new facility to go to “price parity” for CM. At the same time, Meatable presented a technological improvement to reduce the production time of cultivated pork. At the European level, the CM is now clearly a part of the innovation program in food production. Even if the regulation pathway is not established, we hope to see an increase in research support in next years. It is a mandatory condition to create a strong European economical sector.
In another encouraging trend, women founders in the cellular agriculture industry are making significant strides despite facing multiple barriers to entry. In fact, several top companies creating cultivated products are led by women.
