Future Meat Technologies Produces Cultivated Lamb

Aug. 25, 2022
Company adds a new species as it prepares for commercialization in the U.S.

Cultured meat took another step forward with Future Meat Technologies announcing it had produced lamb meat, albeit ground, “which looks, cooks, and tastes like conventional ground lamb meat, making it ideal for burgers, kebabs and more.”

The Israeli company has cultured a number of animal meats. Its development of cultivated lamb started in 2019 with fibroblast cells isolated from Awassi sheep, generating two independent ovine cell lines that divide indefinitely.

“The European Union is the world’s largest lamb consumer, and lamb is the primary meat source for numerous countries across the Middle East, Northern Africa and parts of Asia,” the company noted. It plans to enter the U.S. market with products that include lamb and chicken made at a new production facility, which is expected to break ground somewhere – the site hasn’t been announced – before the end of this year.
