Cultured meat, produced by companies like Eat Just and Mosa Meat, is gaining attention for its potential to provide cruelty-free, climate-friendly, and healthy food options.

Alternatives to foetal bovine serum are being developed to align with animal welfare principles. The Good Food Institute supports the innovation for its positive impact on climate change, public health, and animal suffering.
