An international group of scientists has taken a step closer to its goal of producing cultured meat by agreeing on important common practices about how to bring the research forward.

The expert panel met at a recent workshop to discuss the future of research in the area, in the process drawing up early agreed positions on some of the issues surrounding lab grown meat.

The scientists noted that many of the technological components needed to successfully culture meat are now in place, including a cell source that is possible to use, several alternative processes to turn these cells into muscle cells for meat, and nutrients free of animal components which can be produced from sunlight and carbon dioxide.
