Addressing the rising global meat demand while protecting the environment: developing Europe’s first competitive “cell-based meat” product

Project description

Advanced techniques for cell-based meat

The increase of the world population in the coming years will increase meat demand considerably, raising environmental and ethical questions. Cell meat technology proposes high-quality meat production from cells instead of an entire animal. However, the cost of such production remains high while consumers are not prepared to make such a shift. The French company Suprême is a pioneer in cell-based meat production with advanced techniques. Now, it proposes a cost-effective and scalable method that considerably reduces production costs. The first step of such an innovative technique is the production of foie gras without animal mistreatment. The EU-funded SUSTAINABLEMEAT project intends to evaluate taste and cost reduction, aiming at the production of ethical and environmentally friendly meat.
