Lab-grown meat sold at butcher shop for the first time


In Singapore, lab-grown meat has recorded another world’s first: availability in a local butcher shop.

GOOD Meat says Huber’s Butchery, one of Singapore’s premier producers and suppliers of high-quality meat products, became the first butchery in the world to sell and serve cultivated meat. The chicken was only available for a short window, however.

GOOD Meat, the cultivated meat division of food technology company Eat Just, Inc., remains the only cultivated meat producer in the world with the ability to sell to consumers after securing approval in Singapore in late 2020. Since launch, the company’s chicken has been featured on menus at local fine dining establishments, roadside hawker stalls and via foodpanda, Asia’s leading food and grocery delivery platform.
