Cultured Meat in the EU Market: Caution, not preconceived barriers (cepAdhoc)

With a world population set to reach 9,7 billion in 2050, and the associated problems of food availability, cultured meat has become a central issue for the European Union as well.




The Italian government's attempt to ban its production and marketing in Italy is not only contrary to European treaties, but also dangerous for the development of research on the subject.

The EU should promote a pragmatic and scientifically based approach to the topic, investigating the possible risks and benefits of consuming cultured meat and avoiding preconceived prejudices.
