Cell-cultured beef could soon be materializing on US shelves following much anticipation as one brand takes the lead. That brand is Aleph Farms, an Israeli start-up that has recently revealed its cell-cultured steaks may be rolled out as early as this year. It comes as the company’s CEO remarked how 2022 would be a crucial period for the industry. In an interview with Food Ingredients First, Didier Toubia confirmed Aleph Farms’ product will be ready for consumption by the end of this year. “The US market is a priority market. And we’re working closely with regulatory agencies to make this happen,” he explained. The launch comes at a time where society is at a “crossroads,” adds Toubia. This includes policymakers, educators, and food suppliers as they scramble to get sustainable meat alternatives to market. (plantbasednews.org)
"They are not objects, or supermarket stock, or breakfast, or a coat, or a new pair of shoes. They are individuals.They are no different to the dog you walked past on the street who made you smile, and no different to the cat who you loved growing up.They are no different. And when it comes down to their desire to live, and their desire to be free from pain, they are no different to you or I."
