Scientists Announce Plan to Sell Cultured Meat In 2020

In a landmark announcement, Dutch researchers revealed that they want to sell the world’s first cultured meat product in 2020, or just five years’ time. Speaking with the BBC, Peter Verstrate, who is part of Dr. Mark Post’s team at Maastricht University, announced the name of a new firm, Mosa Meat, which he said is “confident” can bring cultured meat to market in half a decade.

Acknowledging that it will likely be an “exclusive” product at first, Verstrate believes the price will come down once there is a proven demand.

Needless to say, this is incredibly exciting news for all those with have expressed strong interest in the potential positive impacts of cultured meat technology, from the environmental, sustainability, and clean energy movements to food safety, global hunger, and animal rights advocates.
