Lab-Grown Chicken Approved for Sale in the US, Marks the Rise of Cultured Meat

Upside Foods and GOOD Meat have received regulatory approval to sell lab-grown chicken in the US, making it the second country to allow the sale of cultured meat. Over 150 companies worldwide are working on cultured meat, milk, and other cellular agriculture products. Advocates argue that lab-grown meat can address the negative environmental and health impacts of traditional meat production. However, industry experts have raised concerns about production costs, energy consumption, and market scalability. Researchers are exploring various methods to improve the meat-growing process, including using different starter cells and developing cost-effective feed options. Consumer acceptance and affordability will be key factors in determining the success of cultured meat.
