Questions of interest for the agriculture sector

Is meat the only product being developed through cellular agriculture? 

No, there are other products such as fats, foie gras, human milk, collagen, liver and protein for pet food as well as other fish-based products. 

Does cultured meat require large amounts of land to set up a production facility? 

No, as long as there are electrical and water supplies available, a carnery can be set up in any industrial lot available, without the need of grazelands or feedlots. 

Will Cultured Meat render traditional meat obsolete? 

No, cultured meat seeks to complement traditional meat as an alternative for those consumers who are looking for a cruelty-free alternative to traditional meat and when the technology to produce cultured meat matures, it is predicted to be a cheaper alternative to traditional meat as well. 

How easy is it for a farmer or landowner to transition into Cultured Meat? 

Very easy. The farmer can allocate a fraction of the land required for traditional husbandry into constructing carnery and carry on with the established supply chain providing CM. 

Is Cultured Meat considered a genetically modified organism (GMO)? 

No, cultured meat is not a GMO as the organism is not modified, it is reproduced through cell culture. 

Are there any “real” animals involved in the process? 

Yes, a host animal is necessary to collect cells for meat cultivation, however this animal will be kept in extremely clean and ethical conditions, assuring its health and happiness which would translate in a better end product. 

What will traditional livestock farmers have to do to remain competitive against Cultured Meat? 

As long as farmers have the highest standards of quality of life for their livestock and products, they will have nothing to worry about as consumers will not radically change their meat consumption habits in the forseeable future.
