Webinar The Science of Alt. Protein: Developing optimized media for cultivated meat production with Dr. David Block

The development of a plant-based, inexpensive media for growth of cultivated meat cells is a key technical hurdle in further commercialization of cultivated meat products. Generatinging a viable alternative to expensive pharmaceutical grade medium is not an easy problem to solve, as it requires experimental optimization of at least 20-30 potential media ingredients simultaneously. Join Dr. Block as he discusses novel experimental optimization methods that can be used to develop new, less expensive media for cultivated meat.

Aleph Farms Debuts Commercial Production Platform for Cultivated Steak, Starts Construction of Its ‘BioFarm’

Today, Aleph Farms announced a platform for the commercial production of its cultivated beef steak. The company says this platform will allow it to eventually produce meat grown from cells of a living cow affordably at scale, putting its cultivated steak at price parity with factory farmed meat. The new production process is the first part of a phased build-out of what Aleph Farms is calling its BioFarm, a pilot plant the company intends to have fully operational by 2022.

The Future of Food: Will you eat lab-grown meat? Your pet will.

This limitation in the texture of lab-grown meat could inhibit its commercial viability, since many people will want more variety. But commercial pet food is a different story — it’s ground up or dried to begin with. And so the first lab-grown meat people buy might end up being for their pets, not themselves.

This Belgian Company Is Growing Animal Fat and Liver In a Lab

Peace of Meat is on a mission to transform the multi-billion dollar meat industry. The Belgian startup has developed its first products: cultured animal fat and liver. Per Vegconomist, the company has produced 20 grams of cultured animal fat as proof of concept. In a decade, with the right facilities, the startup believes it can produce 100,000 tonnes of its cultured product.

How to Sustainably Feed 10 Billion People by 2050, in 21 Charts

Limiting ruminant meat consumption to 52 calories per person per day by 2050—about 1.5 hamburgers per week—would reduce the GHG mitigation gap by half and nearly close the land gap. In North America this would require reducing current beef and lamb consumption by nearly half. Actions to take include improving the marketing of plant-based foods, improving meat substitutes and implementing policies that favor consumption of plant-based foods.
