'Are consumers ready for meat grown in a lab?

Companies like Memphis Meats, Aleph Farms, Higher Steaks, Mosa Meat and Meatable are all trying to bring to supermarkets around the world meat made from cultivated animal cells, but the problem has always been the cost.

Now, Future Meat Technologies has raised $14 million in new financing to build its first pilot manufacturing facilities to bring the cost of production of a cell-made steak down to $10 per pound — or $4 if the meat is combined with plant-based meat substitutes.'

'According to Maastricht University in the Netherlands, cells from a single cow can produce 175 million quarter-pounders, while traditional farming methods would need 440,000 cows for the same output. Because cell culture is a sterile process, there is no need for antibiotics and since the fat and cholesterol levels of cultured meats can be controlled, there are also positive health implications.'
