News Highlights

Upside Foods shares its recipe for scaling cultivated meat at TC Disrupt 2023

How far are carnivorous people willing to go to fight climate change and reduce inhumane factory-farming conditions? That’s a huge question when you’re a player in the lab-grown meat industry. How do you overcome the initial “ick factor,” and what will it take to bring the cost of lab-grown meats in line with the conventional hooved or feathered variety?

Chicken made from animal cells in a lab was served at a Michelin-starred restaurant in San Francisco

Lab-grown chicken produced entirely from animal cells was served for the first time in the US at a San Francisco restaurant on Saturday. Upside Foods and Good Meat both recently received approval from the Food and Drug Administration that deemed their cultivated chicken safe to eat, and approval from the US Department of Agriculture that meant their products could go on sale.
