What is Cultivated Meat?


A tissue sample from the desired species is obtained via a harmless biopsy.

Cells from this sample can be immortilised, allowing them to grow indefinitely. This allows for large-scale quantities of meat to be produced from a single biopsy.


Stem cells are isolated from the tissue sample and adapted to grow in vitro, allowing them to grow and specialise efficiently outside of the animal.

Cells adapt to grow in vitro in serum-free media solutions.


Inside a bioreactor, the cells are fed the nutrients they require to proliferate, producing a biomass of unspecialised cells.

The cells are fed a combination of inputs essential for cell growth, including glucose, minerals, growth factors, oxygen and water.


Once a sufficient cell density is reached in the bioreactor, cells differentiate producing muscle or fat that can then be harvested.

The cells can be seeded onto a scaffold to produce a structured product, or grown without a scaffold to produce a less-structured ‘minced’ product.

Industrial farming is bad for the planet.

At Meatable, we love meat. We see it as an essential part of a balanced diet.
