Singapore Becomes First Country To Approve Sales Of Lab-Created Meat
US Based Start-Up Eat Just Inc. has been approved to sell its lab-made chicken in Singapore. With this, Singapore became the first country in the world to allow the sale of cultured meat. This product is created from animal cells without the slaughter of any chickens. It will debut in Singapore under the "GOOD" Meat brand.
Demand for alternatives to regular meat is on the rise due to environmental and animal welfare concerns. Plant-based meat companies such as Beyond Meat Inc are also experiencing a surge in demand. It is reported that McDonald's has also developed its own plant-based meat.
