Lab-made meat might soon be coming to a dinner plate near you.
The Food and Drug Administration has declared laboratory-grown chicken is “safe to eat,” potentially revolutionizing America’s food processing practices forever.
The agency’s declaration, which came on Wednesday, pertains specifically to cultivated chicken produced by a California start-up, Upside Foods. However, it may soon extend to synthetic meats manufactured by many other companies.
“The world is experiencing a food revolution and the FDA is committed to supporting innovation in the food supply,” Commissioner Robert M. Califf said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Costa Yiannoulis of Synthesis Capital, the world’s largest food technology fund, excitedly told The Washington Post: “We will see this as the day the food system really started changing. The US is the first meaningful market that has approved this — this is seismic and groundbreaking.”
