Netherlands’ Mosa Meat has published a report outlining the developments made in cultured meat so far and its vision for the future of meat production, whilst calling on government and industry to pitch in.

With cultivated meat getting the green light in Singapore and the US FDA confirming the safety of another lab grown chicken product, Netherlands based Mosa Meat has published a report reflecting on recent developments and its vision of the future.

The review​ also outlines what Mosa Meat believes to be the fundamental principles for the field to realise the positive potential impact on climate change, animal welfare, food security, natural resource depletion and public health. Crucially, it calls on a range of stakeholders, including governments and food industry, to contribute to specific parts of the emerging value chain, in order to speed up development of the industry. 

“Beef needs a solution. Industrial meat production continues to accelerate the climate crisis, while the world’s demand for beef is steadily growing. We are creating an alternative approach to producing real beef,"​ contended Maarten Bosch, CEO of Mosa Meat. "With Mosa Meat’s rapid recent growth, creating the biggest scientific team in the industry and the largest cultivated meat campus in the world, I am very excited for what lies ahead as we help reshape the global food system."

The cultivated meat company recently announced the expansion of its industrial scale production facilities in the Netherlands, creating what it claims is the largest cultured meat campus in the world (7,340 m2 or 77,000 sq ft), as well as taking part at COP27 where it aired its views on sustainable meat production.

“We unveiled the first cultivated beef burger to the world in 2013 and a whole new cultivated meat sector has been developed, creating new value chains and collaborations,” added Bosch. “The next step for our field is to develop industrial and commercial sized production facilities to maximise the potential impact. We call upon a range of financial, societal, governmental and scientific institutions to collaborate and further invest into the development of cultivated meat.”
