Cultivated delicacies: shaping tomorrow’s food landscape
One of Newform Foods’ remarkable achievements is the development of Africa’s first cultivated beef burgers, setting the stage for a ground-breaking journey in the world of cultivated meat.
Recently, the company unveiled its latest creation, cultivated lamb meatballs, during a live tasting session on the Workshop 17 podcast. Siv Ngesi, the host, sits down with Newform Foods co-founder and CEO Brett Thompson to talk about how Newform Foods is influencing the future of food and Siv tastes cultivated lamb meatballs for the first time!
What did Siv Ngesi think about lab-cultivated lamb meatballs?
As a self-proclaimed lamb lover, Siv’s reaction was nothing short of astonishment. He declared the meatballs to be reminiscent of the beloved flavours of crispy braaied lamb — a testament to the company’s success in replicating the authentic taste of meat.
His exclamation “Wow, that’s ridiculous, I could go vegan!” captures the essence of Newform Foods’ achievement in bridging the gap between traditional and cultivated meat, even for staunch meat enthusiasts.
