There has been increasing awareness regarding animal abuse and the negative effects of consuming meat laced with chemicals and antibiotics on health. It is estimated that animal agriculture is responsible for the emission of more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined. According to the United Nations, a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.
Eventually, people are looking for healthier options with fewer chemicals. This has given rise to a number of clean meat companies that grow muscle cells and fat cells in a bioreactor, thereby eliminating the needless killing of animals and is also safer for the environment. One such startup involved in the production of cultured meat is Maastricht-based Mosa Meat.
