FUTURE MEAT TECHNOLOGIES TO BUILD LAB MEAT PRODUCTION FACILITY OUTSIDE TEL AVIV 🤔< Um… Maranatha!
» Company says pilot factory is first of its kind worldwide, aims to begin operations in 2020, decrease cost of cultured meat to under $10 a pound
Israeli startup Future Meat Technologies announced Thursday that it was building the world’s first cultured meat pilot production facility outside of Tel Aviv. The company is a Jerusalem-based biotechnology firm that seeks to create cultured meat directly from animal cells through the production of fat and muscle cells, the core building blocks of meat, in a cost-effective manner. The new facility will be located south of Tel Aviv and is expected to begin operating in 2020. All cultured meat has until now been produced in labs at a small scale, but the new plant will turn out much larger quantities, the company said.
