Mission Barns to Release Hybrid Chorizo Sausages With Cultivated Fat

Following its recent partnership with Chinese plant-based producer HEROTEIN, cell cultivated fat producer Mission Barns has announced a similar partnership in the US. Berkeley-based Mission Barns will team up with fellow Californian brand Silva Sausage to create a plant protein sausage using cultivated fat. “This ground-breaking partnership and production run is an important milestone toward cultivated meat technology becoming a reality” The landmark deal marks the first-ever scaled-up manufacturing of a product containing cell-cultured meat, according to the brand.
