Two years ago, Post’s team of researchers presented their first major discovery in the form of a five-ounce hamburger patty, which was created in a lab, but still was remarkably similar to ones sold on supermarket shelves. The reception was promising: The media was abuzz, and the BBC made several food critics try it, one of whom conceded “this is meat to me, it’s not falling apart.”

At this point we’ve already managed to cut the cost by almost 80 percent. I don’t think it will be long before we hit our goal of 65 to 70 dollars per kilo.”
