In this podcast, Mark Post, the Chief Scientific Officer of MosaMeat, discusses the journey of the company and the cultivated meat sector. He recalls the unveiling of the first cultivated meat burger in 2013, a proof of concept that led to the founding of MosaMeat in 2016. Post discusses the challenges of transitioning from academia to entrepreneurship, the initial lack of societal interest in cultivated meat, and the eventual shift in public perception and interest. He also talks about the company's decision to use the term "cultivated meat" and the importance of consistent terminology in the industry. Post shares insights into the manufacturing process, the use of primary cells, and the company's non-GMO approach. He also discusses the company's partnerships, including a recent one with Nutreco to lower the cost of cultivated beef, and the importance of regulatory approval and public acceptance for the future of cultivated meat.
