Lab-grown ‘clean’ meat could be on sale by end of 2018, says producer

…In vitro animal products, sometimes referred to as “clean meat”, are made from stem cells harvested via biopsy from living livestock, which are then grown in a lab over a number of weeks…

…Chicken nuggets, sausage and foie gras created using the technique could be served in restaurants in the US and Asia “before the end of 2018”, (Josh Tetrick, CEO of clean meat manufacturer JUST) told CNN.

But public perception and a reluctance to diverge from traditional farmed meat still represent considerable hurdles for the clean meat industry to overcome, he said.

…one recent study revealed one third of Americans would be willing to eat clean meat regularly or as a replacement for farmed meat.
