With the increased awareness about animal abuse and consequences of the food supply chain on health, consumers are looking forward to healthier options with fewer chemicals. Apart from animal abuse, the conventional practices of animal farming are harmful and unsustainable for both human and animal health. There are pandemics such as mad cow disease, swine flu and bird flu in the livestock farms, making consumers want a sustainable solution. This is where clean meat companies play a major role.
Clean meat companies grow fat cells and muscle cells in a bioreactor and this eliminates animals to a great extent. Mosa Meat, a Dutch startup based in Maastricht, The Netherlands is one such company that joins other startups such as SuperMeat and Memphis Meats aimed at bringing mainstream vegan food.
