Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited an Israeli food tech company on Wednesday to sample its lab-grown meat and express Israel's strong interest in alternative meat and protein.
Steakholder Foods, a startup in central Israel's Rehovot, hosted Netanyahu along with other Israeli tech and health officials. The company 3D-printed cultured fish and meat for the prime minister.
“Today we ate fish that was produced without fish and meat that was produced without cattle,” said Netanyahu, according to a statement from his office. “This is a global revolution.”
