Tesco has called on the UK government to order food companies to ensure all food sold in the UK is deforestation-free.

COVID-19, with all its cascading effects, is expected to cost the global economy upwards of $1 trillion, says the UN’s trade and development agency. The World Bank says it is expected to throw over 60 million additional people into extreme poverty due to these economic shocks - including over 12 million in India, which already houses a fourth of the world’s extreme poor. It’s not so much a wake-up-call as a four-alarm-fire.
Cultivated meat maker Mission Barns is now offering the public a rare opportunity to try their new cultured meat. Beginning this week, consumers can sign up at the Mission Barns website for a chance to be one of 50 to 100 selected tasters to try bacon grown from real pork fat cells, no animal slaughter required.
As global demand for protein grows steadily, our sources of animal protein must diversify to keep up. And Australia is well placed to become an international powerhouse for an emerging research field that could transform the way we produce and eat meat: cellular agriculture.
A recently founded startup from Australia has developed a novel edible scaffold for cultivated meat production, addressing one of the key challenges facing the cellular agriculture industry.
The rise of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing is welcome. After decades of climate experts being shut down or ignored for warning humanity of our impact on the planet, finally, it’s cool to care.
At the start of the pandemic, New Harvest awarded Mike McLellan our very first dissertation award to support a novel workaround for animal serum in the production of cultured meat.
Cultured meat, clean meat, cultivated meat, cell-based meat, craft meat — lovers of linguistic diversity have every reason to rejoice when they come upon the topic of real meat grown from animal cells.
