Together, the members of the Alliance for Meat, Poultry and Seafood Innovation (AMPS Innovation) are working to advance new methods of producing real, high-quality, safe meat, poultry and seafood products directly from animal cells, which, in partnership with the broader agricultural community, we believe will help meet the demands of feeding a growing global population. AMPS Innovation advocates for our industry through sharing our collective expertise, providing insight into our innovation, and committing to safety and transparency with all stakeholders, including industry partners, policymakers, advocates and consumers.

A few years ago, the concept of cell-based meat, sometimes dubbed lab-grown meat, was introduced to the world for the first time, promising environmental and animal welfare benefits that could produce a revolution in food. But as exciting as cell-based meat was and still is, the issue of commercialization remains a challenge.
The North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and the Alliance for Meat, Poultry and Seafood Innovation (AMPS Innovation), which represents cell-based/cultured meat industry stakeholders, called on the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to support mandatory labeling of cell-based/cultured meat and poultry products.
Plant-based meats are no longer a novelty for most US consumers who have at least seen them in the supermarket or tasted burgers from fast-growing brands like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. At the same time, another growing crop of startups has been working on recreating traditional animal meat from stem cells, and it’s possible that their first products could hit at least some markets as early as next year.
