Have you ever considered that livestock agriculture may be a major threat to the environment? The shocking truth is that livestock production uses large amounts of land, water, nutrients, and energy. About 26% of the world’s land area is used for grazing livestock. Also, 33% of the global total arable land is dedicated to fodder and feed production. Livestock consumes about 29% of the water used for global agricultural production. Approximately 14.5% of global emission of greenhouse gases is generated by livestock.

Although livestock can make some positive contributions to the environment such as preventing soil erosion and improving water quality in some areas, the industry is massive and expanding fast. The global consumption of animal products is expected to increase by 70% between 2005 and 2050.

How can we meet the growing consumption demands and more importantly, make meat consumption and production sustainable? Cultured meat is one of the solutions. It not only tastes the same as conventional meat but is also healthier, cruelty-free and more environmentally friendly. However, there are still many challenges that need to be overcome before cultured meat can reach commercial-level production scale, and achieve cost parity with conventional meat. One big challenge for cultured meat manufacturers is to obtain large quantities of cost-effective recombinant proteins and growth factors that are used in cell culture media. GenScript, with its mission to “Make People and Nature Healthier through Biotechnology”, has more than 10 years of experience in R&D and production of recombinant proteins. We are excited to collaborate with cultured meat manufacturers to overcome the toughest industry bottlenecks. It is our great honor to have the opportunity to contribute our efforts to the future of food.
