Most People Would At Least Consider Trying Cultured Meat – Food Industry Executive

The study, which surveyed more than 4,000 people in the US and UK, found that 80% of people are either “highly likely” or “would consider” trying cultivated meat. Only 2 in 10 people said they weren’t open to it. Most of the consumers hadn’t heard of cultivated meat before the survey, but once they understood what it was, they could imagine a future where 60% of their meat came from conventional sources while 40% was cultivated.

When will lab-grown meat reach the European market?

As cultivated meat and fat are novel foods, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) requires they be approved as such. In March this year, EFSA published scientific and technical guidance for the preparation and submission of applications for authorisation of novel foods. Within this latest guidance, EFSA indicates which data are required for submissions, including that related to product identification, manufacturing processes, and compositions of nutritional profiles, Brandes explained.
