A report from The New York Times in late September found that kosher bacon could be a thing of the future.
The Orthodox Union, the largest kosher certifying organization in the world, is looking into how Jewish people should categorize “clean meat” or meat that is grown in laboratories from animal cells.
Rabbi Gavriel Price was featured in the article and recently visited Berkeley, California, to tour Mission Barns, a startup that is currently cultivating animal cells and creating cell-based meat.
The executives at Mission Barns were excited about the opportunity, but Price was hesitant to make any proclamations at this point. He stated that the cells used in cell-based meat would have to be from animals that were slaughtered according to kosher standards.
