Singapore is one of the nations that have been open to the idea of utilising alternative sources of nutrition for its food supply. The country, through the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), has given regulatory approval to GOOD Meat to sell different types of cultivated chicken products. This company is part of Eat Just Inc., a food tech enterprise that focuses on sustainable and healthier food items.
This announcement comes one year after GOOD Meat introduce high-quality meat that’s cultivated directly from animal cells. It is also actively supporting Singapore’s “30 By 30” campaign, helping achieve its goal of producing 30% of the country’s nutritional needs locally and sustainably by 2030.
Systems and equipment that will help boost manufacture of cultivated meat are being set up by GOOD Meat and will be operational in the next two years. Experts, scientists and engineers will also be hired for this campaign.
“A lot has changed in our world over the last year, but one thing has stayed the same: Singapore continues to lead the global transformation to a smarter, more sustainable food system. We’re proud to celebrate our one-year-anniversary of the first-ever sale of cultivated meat with this important regulatory and product announcement that’s again taking place in Singapore,” said Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of Eat Just.
