KFC is working with a Russian biotechnology lab to make the world’s first lab-produced chicken nuggets.
The bioprinted nuggets are part of the chain’s “restaurant of the future” concept. KFC says that cell-based meat products would be more environmentally-friendly and cause less harm to animals.
“3D bioprinting technologies, initially widely recognised in medicine, are nowadays gaining popularity in producing foods such as meat,” Yusef Khesuani, co-founder of 3D Bioprinting Solutions said in the press statement.
KFC says the bioprinted nuggets will be available for testing in Moscow in autumn 2020.
