   Lab-Grown 'Mosa Meat' To Hit High-End Restaurants Within 2 Years

Mosa Meat is the latest company to jump on the “clean meat” bandwagon, announcing they’ll be launching their own version within the next two years. This comes right after the conclusion of a round of funding at an undisclosed amount. They join other startups like Memphis Meats and SuperMeat to bring us mainstream vegan food.

Major corporations are beginning to invest in clean meat startups. We’ve seen Tyson buy into Beyond Meat, who is offering their famous Beyond Burger at restaurants like TGI Fridays. SuperMeat received $3 million in funding at the beginning of the year and will be bringing their products into the market in the next few years as well.

Mosa Meat has been collaborating with Mark Post, a university professor in the Netherlands, to make clean beef affordable. They unveiled the first clean meat burger back in 2013, which was cultivated muscle fiber from cows. However, the cost of that burger was approximately $300,000 -- not a price anyone is willing to pay at the supermarket.
