‘No kill’ meat, grown from animal cells, is now approved for sale in the U.S.

The USDA grants approval for the sale of “no kill” meat grown from animal cells in the United States.

Landmark approval: GOOD Meat and UPSIDE Foods receive USDA clearance for sales of their cultivated chicken products.
* GOOD Meat already sells its cultivated chicken in Singapore, the first country to allow sales of such products.
* UPSIDE Foods’ textured chicken product is made from over 99% chicken cells and is produced in a 70,000-square-foot facility.

Long-term benefits: Proponents of cultivated meat argue it offers a more sustainable and humane food system.
* It has the potential to reduce the need for antibiotics and methane emissions associated with animal agriculture.
* However, the impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions depends on the electricity sources used for production.

Coming soon: Selected restaurants will serve cultivated meat products as consumer awareness builds.
* Celebrity chef José Andrés plans to serve GOOD Meat’s cultivated chicken in one of his restaurants.
* Dominique Crenn, owner of a three-Michelin-starred restaurant, will serve UPSIDE’s cultivated chicken at her restaurant Bar Crenn in San Francisco.
