Memphis Meats, a San Francisco-based food technology start-up, has now grown the world’s first lab-grown chicken and duck strips.

Tasting (almost) and looking (see for yourself in the image above) like the real thing, the chicken is grown in bioreactor tanks using living animal cells that can regenerate, fed on oxygen, sugars and minerals. The start-up hopes to produce real meat that is delicious, affordable and sustainable.

Dubbed ‘clean meat’, this is a growing industry, with the development of Dutch start-up Mosa Meat and by Israel’s SuperMeat, who are currently crowdfunding to finance the development of their own lab chicken.
