Today’s meat industry is one of the largest contributors to global warming. Its business model isn’t sustainable in an ever-growing world, and so we need alternative and sustainable ways to “meat” demand for meat products. Thankfully, science has prevailed yet again and come up with an answer - Lab-Grown Meat. This meat is grown using in vitro cells isolated from the animal. No animals are slaughtered in this process, and they go on to live fulfilling lives.
Here are some of the companies that are hungry to provide the best lab-grown meat for our greener future.
SuperMeat is a food tech company founded by Ido Savir, Koby Barak, Shir Friedman in 2015. This company is located in Tel Aviv and has about 20 employees
Super Meat focuses on producing lab-grown chicken using in vitro cultured cells in a safe and controlled environment, external to the animal’s body. This kind of clean meat will require significantly less resources for its production (99% less land, 90% less water), making it both a healthy and sustainable food source for the coming century.
Mosa Meat is a company made popular by its founder Dr. Mark Post who produced the first burger made completely of culture cells in 2013. This company is located in the Netherlands and has about 100 employees.
Mosa Meat produces slaughter-free hamburgers made from meat that is harvested from cow cells instead of raised and slaughtered livestock. They’ve removed the use of FBS from their formula and replaced it with myoglobin to give their meat patties a better color. By growing meat naturally from cells, Mosa Meat strives to accelerate the transition to a truly sustainable global food system.
Aleph Farms is a company founded by Didier Toubia & Shulamit Levenberg. This company is located in Israel and has about 60 employees.
Alpeh Farms is paving a new way forward in producing delicious beef steaks from non-genetically engineered cells, isolated from a cow. This remarkable alternative to raising livestock uses a fraction of the resources and is antibiotic-free.
