The world’s demand for meat is increasing, yet the impact of livestock farming is devastating for the environment and climate change. Cultivated meat offers a solution to the growing demand for meat, enabling meat production on a much smaller footprint than conventional farming methods, reducing pressures on land and promoting biodiversity.
What is cultivated meat?
Small samples of tissue are taken from an animal. These tissues contain stem cells that have the ability to replicate.
After isolating stem cells from the tissue, they are placed in a safe and controlled cell culture environment.
These animal stem cells are provided with nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins and fats, promoting the cells to divide and grow.
When enough cells have been produced, they can be matured into meat cells. They are then processed into burgers, sausages, mince or nuggets for a delicious, guilt-free experience.
