Just is full steam ahead into their global push. They’re partnering with Doha Venture Capital and Qatar Free Zones Authority to build the first-ever cultivated meat facility in the MENA region.
San Fransisco-based food tech company, Air Protein, has created a substitute for meat from the elements present in the air around us.

Former juice brand Forager Project this week announced it would launch plant-based ice cream — the next step in the company’s goal to become a plant-based “creamery.”
