The announcement from Eat Just comes around a year after the US firm received the world’s first approval to sell cultivated meat.
Eat Just has been given the green light in Singapore to sell new types of its cultivated chicken, around a year after the US firm received the world’s first approval to sell cultivated meat.
The first of the new products, a chicken breast, will be unveiled at the JW Marriott Singapore South Beach in the coming days.
The product will be tasted by a group of young people from Camp Asia's Super Chef Camp.
The new types of cultivated chicken products, which will be sold under Eat Just’s Good Meat brand, have been approved by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).
In a release, Eat Just also said that it will continue to invest in its production capacity in Singapore.
Eat Just said: “The design and manufacturing of vessels and systems that will enable significant increases in cultivated meat production capacity are underway now with the goal of having the equipment installed and operational in the next two years.
“The company will continue to hire engineers, scientists, manufacturing professionals and others locally to run the facility and drive the business.
Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of Eat Just, said: "A lot has changed in our world over the last year, but one thing has stayed the same: Singapore continues to lead the global transformation to a smarter, more sustainable food system.
"We’re proud to celebrate our one-year-anniversary of the first-ever sale of cultivated meat with this important regulatory and product announcement that’s again taking place in Singapore,”
It made its debut at restaurant 1880 in Singapore.
At 1880, which is known for innovative menus, the chicken nuggets were made available in three dishes:bao bun with crispy sesame cultured chicken and spring onion; phyllo puff pastry with cultured chicken and black bean puree; and a crispy maple waffle with cultured chicken with spices and hot sauce.
Singapore is home to Eat Just’s Asia-Pacific headquarters and its first factory in Asia.
