It's no secret that Pork is forbidden under Jewish Kashrut (Kosher) Law. It's also no secret that cell-cultured animals aren't hurting animals or contributing to Global Warming. So is this idea a mass game-changer for the Jewish and wider world?
MeaTech 3D is pursuing porcine cellular agriculture as pork is currently the most consumed meat across the globe. The pork meat market is estimated to be worth $20 billion annually in the US alone. Initial R&D activities will focus on developing stable porcine cell lines which will have the potential to initiate cultivated pork biomass production capabilities.
