The Tel Aviv company’s clean meat is produced by growing cells that have been painlessly extracted from a chicken.
As reported in Globes:
Clean meat is also highly beneficial for the environment, with drastically reduced carbon and ecological footprints compared to current meat production methods.
With the new funding, the company plans bringing its clean chicken products to market within three years, at a price point similar to the conventional chicken products currently available on store shelves.
