Future Meat Technologies Launches World’s First Industrial Cultured Meat Production Facility

Company opens the first industrial cultured meat facility, with immediate outlook toward U.S. expansion.

REHOVOT, Israel, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Future Meat Technologies, an industry-leading company developing innovative technology to produce cultured meat, has opened the world’s first industrial cultured meat facility. With the capability to produce 500 kilograms of cultured products a day, equivalent to 5,000 hamburgers, this facility makes scalable cell-based meat production a reality.

“This facility opening marks a huge step in Future Meat Technologies’ path to market, serving as a critical enabler to bring our products to shelves by 2022,” says Rom Kshuk, CEO of Future Meat Technologies. “Having a running industrial line accelerates key processes such as regulation and product development.”

Currently, the facility can produce cultured chicken, pork and lamb, without the use of animal serum or genetic modification (non-GMO) with the production of beef coming soon. Future Meat Technologies’ unique platform enables fast production cycles, about 20-times faster than traditional animal agriculture.

Mission Barns To Start Taste Tests Of Its Cell-Based Bacon

Berkeley, California-based food tech Mission Barns is planning to start tastings of its cell-based bacon and pork fat this month. The startup is now discussing partnerships with leading food companies to use its cultured animal fat, grown in bioreactors using its proprietary technology, with plant-based components to create “hybrid” alternative meats that are cruelty-free and sustainable, yet unrivalled in terms of taste.
