Meatable, a Dutch-based food tech startup, held a cultivated meat tasting event in Singapore ahead of its 2024 launch in the country. Event attendees provided invaluable feedback on the taste and texture of the company's cultivated and plant-based hybrid sausages and pulled pork produced in collaboration with Love Handle, Asia's first plant-based butcher.
“Did I like the cultivated meat? Definitely! It’s a new revolution. I think cultivated meat will disrupt the world!” - Stephan Zoisl, Chef’s Table
“We are delighted to have delivered this tasting event in Singapore and humbled by the responses we got. It is a great way for us to collect their feedback and optimize our products even further. This is also an important step towards full regulatory approval for sales in Singapore. All this helps us move closer to fulfilling our mission to satisfy the world’s appetite for meat without harming people, animals, or the planet.” - Krijn de Nood, Meatable Co-Founder and CEO
Earlier this year, Meatable announced $35 million in new funding, bringing its total funding to $95 million, and broke a world record by producing cultured meat in only eight days, a process 30 times faster than it takes to raise a pig for its meat. Meatable also announced a partnership with ESCO Aster, the world’s only licensed cultivated meat manufacturer, to bring its products to restaurants and retailers in the country.
“We are taking this process step by step and will use our experience in Singapore to guide us in other countries. After Singapore, we are planning to expand to the US. Depending on regulatory developments elsewhere, we will update our strategy accordingly.” - Carolien Wilschut, Meatable COO.
