EU approval has been granted to a Czech startup to incorporate lab-grown meat into pet food, specifically designed for cats and dogs.
Although not everyone may find the idea of eating lab-grown meat appealing, it leads to the question: would you consider feeding your dog kibble made from this type of meat?
Due to the contrasting approvals of cell-cultured meat products between Europe, Singapore, and the United States, this question may seem trivial, especially considering that Europe has not yet authorized their commercialization.
