George Peppou’s company could serve lab-grown quail meat to Australians by 2024


Vow, Australia’s first cell-based meat company has begun the regulatory approval process with Food Standards ANZ to serve lab-grown quail in restaurants by 2024.

Co-founder and chief executive of Vow, George Peppou, told the Australian Financial Review the company will find out if it has the approval of Food Standards ANZ by May next year.

“They are publishing on their website the executive summary of what we’re submitting for approval. It’s the first public discourse for cell cultured meat in Australia,” Peppou said.

The former chef said the process of making the meat takes two months. An almond-sized biopsy is taken from the animal, the cells are replicated and fed a solution that gives them nutrients to grow.

Mr Peppou added that “there will be some resistance, or discomfort, with the idea that there are these new types of ways of producing meat.”

Food Standards ANZ said in a statement it would assess Vow‘s production process and the “chemical, nutritional, microbiological and dietary exposure” of the quail meat.
