Meat Replacement Products and Process Safety

Whitepaper Download

Biomanufacturing is a promising technology that is rapidly becoming mainstream. It is used, among other things, to create meat replacement products that promise an ample supply of high-quality protein without the ill effects associated with raising and slaughtering livestock. It is important to recognize, however, that biomanufacturing might give rise to new risks.

We must keep in mind that while meat replacement products may be launching a revolution in our food supply, they might also be the source of risks yet unknown. There are a number of well-documented incidents caused by loss of containment of micro-organisms from laboratories, and biomanufacturing utilizes engineered micro-organisms to make products such as meat replacements.
Fortunately, humankind has successfully addressed the challenges posed by unfamiliar hazards before and, with process safety, has developed a robust framework suited to tackling any risks that emerge from biomanufacturing.
