International food sustainability nonprofit the Good Food Institute Europe has praised the UK government’s £12 million investment in a sustainable protein research centre.

The hub, which will run for seven years, will investigate how to manufacture cultivated meat at scale. A peer-reviewed study recently found that cultivated meat can cut the climate impact of meat by up to 92%, reduce air pollution by up to 94%, and use up to 90% less land.
