Imagine sitting in a restaurant, getting ready to enjoy a tasty meal. But guess what? The meal on your plate didn’t come from a farm like usual. It was made in a laboratory nearby! Is it even possible, you may think?
There is a cool place called Huber’s Butchery and Bistro in Singapore. They have something super special on their menu. It’s called cultivated or lab-grown meat, and people are loving it! The owner of the restaurant says that customers think it’s amazing.
You might be wondering, what exactly is cultivated meat? Well, it’s real meat made in labs, but it’s made without hurting or killing any animals. It’s a new way of eating that could make sense for the future, says Josh Tetrick, the boss of Eat Just.
The people at Eat Just, a company from California, are the ones who came up with this unique meat. According to them, it’s good for the planet, clean, and doesn’t harm any animals. They’re spending a lot of money to make it better.
Back in 2013, a burger made in a lab was introduced in London. Can you believe it cost a whopping $330,000 to make? That’s pretty expensive, right? Since then, many companies from around the world have come together. They are trying to bring affordable cultivated or lab-grown meat to everyone.
Right now, Eat Just is the only company allowed to sell its lab-grown chicken in Singapore. It is the only country where this kind of meat is allowed for now and it’s not easily available yet. There were some chicken nuggets made in a lab that was on the menu at a fancy club in 2021, but it didn’t last long.
Now, Huber’s is offering a yummy chicken sandwich and a tasty chicken pasta dish to the public. It’s a small taste of what might be the future of food.
So who knows? Maybe, one day we’ll all be enjoying this incredible food made in labs. It is an exciting idea that could change where our food comes from.
