First-ever public tasting of lab-grown Cultured Beef burger

On Monday 5 August, Professor Mark Post of Maastricht University presented a burger made from Cultured Beef in front of an invited audience in London. This first-ever public tasting highlighted the urgent need to find a sustainable solution to food production.

This was acknowledged by the World Technology Network when Mark Post received the World Technology Award for Environment on 15 November. The Award winners are individuals and organizations that are doing innovative work of “the greatest likely long-term significance" in their fields.
