    FDA GRANTS FIRST EVER APPROVAL OF LAB-GROWN MEAT, USDA MUST ALSO APPROVE
    by Jenna Hoffman and Jim Wiesemeyer, AgWeb.com

    The FDA approved lab-grown chicken for the first time, greenlighting products from startup Upside Foods for human consumption. If Upside gets USDA approval next, the company said it could start pumping out 50,000 pounds of "no-kill" meat products every year.

    The news follows Upside's April announcement that it had secured $400 million in Series C funding, moving the company "from R&D to commercialization," according to CEO Uma Valeti.

    "Our team...continues to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges in our mission to make our favorite food a force for good," said Valeti.

    Upside, with 140 employees, has now garnered over $600 million in funding from names like Bill Gates and meat companies Tyson and Cargill.
