France calls for a “clear” definition of synthetic meat at European level


Feb 12, 2024

The French Prime Minister is urging the European Union to provide a "clear" definition of lab-grown meat. Speaking in a news conference, the Prime Minister has said cultured meat is "not part of what we understand by French diet" which is why France wants a "clear legislation at the European level to determine what lab-grown meat is".

Last month, agriculture ministers from France, Austria and Italy kicked off what they called a "culinary alliance" seeking a public debate around lab-grown meat.

Synthetic meat cannot be sold in the European Union as it has not been authorised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
