The Czechs were the first in the world to achieve certification for laboratory-grown meat, which can now be added to dog and cat food. The company also tries to grow meat intended for humans. In the future, thanks to their development, people could also indulge in ethical steaks, without the guilt of killing animals.
The Czech start-up Bene Meat Technologies (BMT) received certification for meat from the laboratory from the European Feed Materials Register. Company representatives state that they are the only company in the world that can add artificially grown meat to feed. They are now in talks with feed manufacturers to introduce sample products early next year. They should hit store shelves the same year.
The Prague-based start-up has been working on the development and technology of cultured meat production since 2020 in an international team of 80 scientists. The investor is the international BTL group, which operates in the field of medical devices.
