The C3 Take
  • Livestock accounts for 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions each year.
  • Cultivated meat, which looks and tastes like real meat, is grown in bioreactors using animal cells and eggs.
  • U.S.-based Good Meats is building a cultivated meat facility that will be able to produce almost 14,000 tons of meat annually by 2030.
  • Private sector leadership and consumer choice is creating cutting-edge innovation.

“The process of meat cultivation involves using a bioreactor where cells sourced from cell banks or eggs of the livestock animals can be grown. A bioreactor is a large vessel that provides the cells with all the necessary nutrients and conditions for optimal growth. Once the cells reach a certain stage, they can be harvested.”
