This is another step forward in executing MeaTech’s go-to-market strategy. Recently, Peace of Meat cultivated just over 700 grams of pure chicken fat biomass in a single production run. The company believes that producing this quantity of pure cultured material in one run was a breakthrough toward potentially manufacturing cultivated chicken fat at an industrial scale.

Arik Kaufman, MeaTech’s chief executive officer: “Peace of Meat’s new pilot facility will expedite our entry into the market for plant-based meat alternatives and cultured products. We believe that cultured animal fat can infuse alternative meat products with the signature flavors, aromas and textures of conventionally farmed meat. The result is expected to deliver an enhanced consumer experience.“
