Breaking! Eat Just Makes Historic Move With First-Ever Sale Of Cultured Meat To 1880 In Singapore

Eat Just, Inc., a company that applies cutting-edge science and technology to create healthier, more sustainable foods, announced on the heels of its historic regulatory approval for cultured chicken, that it has made the first commercial sale of meat created directly from animal cells for human consumption. GOOD Meat Cultured Chicken will launch at 1880 Club this Saturday, December 19th, in Singapore.

When seeking out the world’s first restaurant to sell and serve cultured meat, Eat Just wanted to ensure their partner would not only satisfy guests’ appetites with a superior culinary experience, but would also connect and enlighten them with a philosophy of feeding the body and the mind. There was no more perfect partner in Singapore than 1880, which opened three years ago in Robertson Quay and has become known for its innovative menus, thought-provoking events, and social impact programming.

“This historic step, the first-ever commercial sale of cultured meat, moves us closer to a world where the majority of meat we eat will not require tearing down a single forest, displacing a single animal’s habitat or using a single drop of antibiotics,” Josh Tetrick, Co-founder and CEO of Eat Just, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to partner with 1880 to launch a product that will someday be served on the dinner tables of families living in the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama, to the skyscrapers of Shanghai.”

“We are honored to host the global launch of Eat Just’s first cultured meat product. This is a revolutionary step towards solving climate change and creating the opportunity to feed the world without overwhelming the planet,” stated 1880 Founder Marc Nicholson.

Preparing a menu for the inaugural guests to enjoy GOOD Meat Cultured Chicken was a feat in and of itself. Diners will take an immersive journey through the past, present, and future of our food system. The experience culminates with three cultured chicken dishes, each bite influenced by a top chicken-producing country in the world: China, Brazil, and the United States. Eat Just is particularly proud to share that the first diners will be young people ages 14-18 who have shown, through their consistent actions, a commitment to building a better planet.

“This is a very exciting collaboration for me. It’s working with new ingredients, something very creative, something we’ve never quite seen before, and I think people are going to love it,” said 1880 Executive Chef Colin Buchan.

“Rarely does a career chef get the chance to create an entirely new category of food and help design an interactive meal to introduce that product, and the meaning behind it, to the world for the very first time. Working with Chef Colin on such a groundbreaking menu has been an exciting project. We look forward to sharing it with 1880’s clientele in the coming weeks and months,” said Chef Nate Park, Director of Product Development at Eat Just.

Washington Department Of Fish & Wildlife Kills The Last Two Members Of The Wedge Wolf Pack Over Livestock Conflict So That People Can Eat Meat

It is with heavy hearts that WAN shares the news that the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has killed the last two remaining members of the Wedge wolf pack on August 13th. This is sadly due to conflicts between wolves and livestock. Despite public outcry from around the world to change how the department manages endangered species throughout the state, WDFW still went ahead and killed the last two remaining members of the wolf pack.

“The nonstop killing of wolves in Washington has to end now,” Sophia Ressler, Washington wildlife advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity, said in a statement. “These wolves shouldn’t be gunned down just for trying to feed their families. It’s ludicrous that Washington officials aren’t implementing appropriate preventive measures and instead choose to slaughter a state endangered species.”

The state has now killed 34 wolves, almost all of them for livestock conflicts in the Kettle River Range, an area of prime wolf habitat. Twenty-nine of the wolves killed have been for the same livestock owner.

Washington is killing endangered species so that livestock can be killed for their meat for human consumption. This should be illegal.

The most recently eradicated Wedge pack wolves occupied very similar territory to the previous Wedge pack. The department killed seven of that eight-member pack in 2012, effectively destroying it. Yet, the 2012 eradication failed to prevent wolves from quickly reoccupying the territory.

The Center for Biological Diversity and several other conservation groups have urged Washington Governor Jay Inslee to require formal rules that would dictate required nonlethal deterrence measures and extra steps that must be taken in areas of chronic conflict. The current guidelines are created by Washington’s Wolf Advisory Group and are not considered enforceable requirements by the state.

Just last week, the state removed a vocal wolf advocate from the advisory group for disagreeing with the department’s choices. This decision outraged conservation groups and prompted a new call to Governor Inslee for wolf-management reform.

“There is no scientific support that killing wolves is an effective long-term solution for preventing conflict,” continued Ressler. “Mandating effective range riding or other appropriate deterrence measures would help to deter conflict and, in turn, save both wolves and livestock.”

The state also has an active kill order out for wolves in the Leadpoint pack, whose territory borders the Wedge pack’s territory.

The killing of these endangered wolves to satisfy human greed is unfathomably, sickening, senseless, and must end.
