Lab-meat technologies come to China E-mail

In September, China signed a US$300 million trade deal to import Israeli lab-meat technologies, VegNews reported. Two Israeli companies – SuperMeat and Future Meat Technologies – are currently working to replace meat animals with “synthetic labgrown cultured” meat.

China signed the deal as part of its effort to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the impact of cows and other animals that emit methane. Cows are considered the most dangerous source of greenhouse gases on the planet.

Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing has been investing heavily in US food-technology firms Impossible Foods and Hampton Creek. The latter firm plans to start marketing its lab meat as early as 2018.

In July, SuperMeat reached its US$100,000 crowdfunding goal, and has recruited awardwinning biomedical engineer Yaakov Nahmias of the Hebrew University and Prof. Shulamit Levenberg from the Technion to develop a meat-making machine that would use animal cells to produce “real meat without harming animals”.
