There is a brand new kind of food entering the market, and how cell-based meat will be perceived and regulated is still up for debate. Cell-based seafood companies BlueNalu and Finless Foods are teaming up with meat and poultry cell-based meat companies to create a united front.
Cell-based, or ‘cultured’ meats are meat, poultry and seafood products that are grown in a lab, using cultured animal cells. In order to represent the joint interests of these innovative new companies, a coalition was formed to work with government and determine what regulation and labeling will look like when these new types of foods start to populate supermarket shelves. The Alliance for Meat, Poultry & Seafood Innovation (AMPS Innovation for short) is comprised of 5 cell-based meat companies: BlueNalu, Memphis Meats, JUST, Finless Foods and Fork & Goode.
