Hyderabad's CCMB to develop clean meat

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Mar 29:In an initiative that has the potential to upend the prevailing food habits in the country, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) will collaborate with Humane Society of India (HSI) to develop clean meat.
This means the meat is grown in a laboratory without actually killing animals. The research and development of clean meat will be undertaken at the recently launched Atal Incubation Centre of CCMB. The aim is also to bring interested startups, voluntary organisations and even regulatory authorities under one roof and build an entire ecosystem surrounding various aspects of clean meat in India.
To begin with, a multiple stakeholder meet, including Good Food Institute of India, is scheduled to be held in the coming days to finalise issues such as technical details, future plans and funding, among others. The collaboration between CCMB and HSI will also involve authorities to develop a regulatory framework for clean mean technology, which at present does not exist in India. "Clean meat is starting to catch up in Europe and United States. Before India loses ground in developing this technology, we felt that research should be taken up at the earliest. At the end of the day, animals will not be killed from this technology," says Alokparna Sengupta of HSI.
The major challenge for researchers of CCMB will be to make the clean meat project scalable.
"There are enough technologies that can literally multiply any kind of cell, but the challenge will remain in scaling up in an economically affordable way. Clean meat will also offer an opportunity to improve nutritional value," says Dr Rakesh Mishra, director of CCMB.
There are inherent social and cultural challenges in making people accept clean meat as a regular substitute to traditional meat. "The eating habits and customs are age-old, but still there is a lot of potential for clean meat technology in India. The technology has started to get a lot of financing in Europe. There is a definite need to spread awareness about it," Sengupta said.
