TORONTO, June 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - CULT Food Science Corp. ("CULT" or the "Company") (CSE: CULT) (OTC: CULTF) (FRA: LN0), a pioneer in the investment, development, and commercialization of cellular agriculture technologies and products, announces that GOOD Meat, the cultivated meat division of CULT's portfolio company, Eat Just, Inc., and UPSIDE Foods have received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to sell cell-cultivated meat in the United States.

"For some time a question that has come up for the industry is will the regulatory landscape need to shift to support the safe and successful adoption of cell-cultivated foods. These approvals show that the technology fundamentals remain sound and that the production of cell-cultivated foods remains consistent, safe, reliable, and reproducible. This milestone is an important indicator for every company in the space," said Lejjy Gafour, CEO of CULT Food Science.

This landmark approval represents a significant milestone not only for GOOD Meat and UPSIDE Foods but also for the entire cultivated meat industry and the global food system. As the first company to sell cultivated meat in the world, GOOD Meat has now received clearance to bring its innovative product to American consumers, marking a major step forward in reshaping the future of food.

Following the "no questions" letters received by both UPSIDE Foods and GOOD Meat from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this USDA approval solidifies the safety and compliance of both companies' cultivated chicken, affirming its potential to revolutionize the way meat is produced and consumed.

GOOD Meat's success in obtaining regulatory clearance showcases the dedication and collaboration of the FDA, USDA, and GOOD Meat's team in driving innovation and fostering a more sustainable and efficient food system. This achievement aligns with CULT Food Science's mission to advance cellular agriculture technologies and products, supporting the transition to a healthier, safer, and more sustainable future for food.
