We’ve come a long way since the first cultivated meat burger was revealed back in 2013. As growing numbers of consumers strive to take action on climate change, millions of meat eaters are looking for new solutions to enjoy ethically and environmentally-sound burgers and bacon that genuinely look, smell and taste like the real deal. Today the cultured meat industry encompasses over 60 companies and is backed by $450M+ of investment.
But the jury is still out on what the future holds. Advocates see the huge market potential of products that are nutritionally identical to their conventional cousins yet far less resource-heavy to produce. While others stress that there are regulatory hurdles still to be jumped and bringing products to market at commercially viable prices remains a significant challenge.
On May 31st, as part of our Impact Platform Sustainable Proteins, we’ll be joined by a panel of experts for a deep dive session on the topic of cultured meat. We’ll be inviting them to share their insights and predictions – and the opportunities for Swiss companies to get involved in this field – before opening the floor for questions, discussion and debate.
The event will take place online on May 31st 2022, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. The session is free to attend and anyone with an interest in the topic is welcome to join us.
We look forward to seeing you there!
