Eat Just Granted World’s First Regulatory Approval for Cultured Meat


SINGAPORE
Friday, December 4th, 2020

Eat Just is innovating once again, announcing that its cultured chicken has been approved for sale in Singapore as an ingredient for chicken bites. As lab-grown meat becomes a steadily growing category, this move marks Eat Just’s commitment to constant innovation in the space.

Josh Tetrick, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Eat Just"Singapore has long been a leader in innovation of all kinds, from information technology to biologics to now leading the world in building a healthier, safer food system. I'm sure that our regulatory approval for cultured meat will be the first of many in Singapore and in countries around the globe. Working in partnership with the broader agriculture sector and forward-thinking policymakers, companies like ours can help meet the increased demand for animal protein as our population climbs to 9.7 billion by 2050," said Josh Tetrick, Co-Founder and CEO.

According to a press release, this regulatory allowance of real, high-quality meat created directly from animal cells paves the way for a forthcoming commercial launch in Singapore of Eat Just’s new GOOD Meat brand. The company also formed strategic partnerships with well-established local manufacturers in Singapore to produce cultured chicken cells and formulate the finished product ahead of its sale of the product to foodservice operators.

Throughout the manufacturing process, the chicken is run through over 20 production runs in 1,200-liter bioreactors to ensure the highest quality is achieved. No antibiotics are used in this process.

As we see more lab-grown meat take residence in the sector, will the United States be the next country to include this tech on menus?
