“Cultivated meat” is meat that is made by culturing in a bioreactor using animal cells obtained from animals, fertilized eggs, cell banks, etc.

In Singapore, Eat Just, the parent company of GOOD Meat, has already been approved as a safe food by the Food Agency, and the United States will be the second country in the world where cultured meat is distributed.

UPSIDE Foods described the USDA approval as a “historic milestone.”

UPSIDE Foods explains that 'cultured meat' is not 'meat substitute' but 'meat' itself, the only difference being the production method. The culturing process is like brewing beer, ``raising animal cells instead of growing yeast or bacteria,'' UPSIDE Foods said.

EPIC (Engineering, Production and Innovation Center) owned by UPSIDE Foods in the suburbs of San Francisco can produce up to 50,000 pounds (about 22.7 tons) of cultured meat per year, and up to 400,000 pounds ( 181.4 tons).

In the future, he plans to partner with Michelin three-star chef Dominic Clen to offer a cultured meat menu at Bar Clen in San Francisco.

On the other hand, GOOD Meats also started production of cultured meat to provide to the restaurant group run by chef Jose Andrés immediately after obtaining approval.
