The cultivated meat division of food technology company Eat Just, Inc., announced on March 21st that it has received a "no questions" letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which means that the FDA has accepted the company’s conclusion that its first poultry product, cultivated chicken, is safe to eat. It is a crucial step in bringing GOOD Meat to restaurants and retail in the US. The company is now working with the US Department of Agriculture on necessary approvals, and world-renowned chef and humanitarian José Andrés (José Andrés Group, 30 restaurants in the US) is working on a new menu, after which GOOD Meat will become the first company serving its chicken in two countries.
The company is also working on price parity with traditional meat. Earlier this year, GOOD Meat secured approval from the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) to use a new material (media) to grow its cultivated meat products. Cellular agriculture growth serum, often called fetal bovine serum (FBS), costs up to 99% of cultivated meat production.
