In November 2021, FDA granted regulatory approval for the commercial sale of cultured meat produced by food-tech company, Upside Food, making it the first company in the world to achieve this milestone. The administration just annonce second approval for Good Meat.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently given regulatory approval for the commercial sale of cultured chicken produced by food-tech company Good Meat, a brand owned by the company Eat Just. The company’s cultivated meat manufacturing involves growing animal cells in bioreactors, without any need for animal slaughter. The process is believed to be more sustainable and ethical compared to traditional meat production.
The FDA approval could pave the way for more companies to launch their own cultivated meat products, and lead to wider acceptance of such products in the food industry.
