Cartoon-steak GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHYI want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season. I hope you’re looking forward to Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa.

In case you’re new to the sight, we haven’t had a shoot the shit in a while, it’s difficult producing good topics, but as luck would have it, a reader sent me a topic that I’ll guarantee will be news to you, but first, let’s talk about what a shoot the shit is, so you can schedule your own.

A shoot the shit is a social interaction during which any topic can be discussed. The participants don’t need to know anything about the topic, they’re free to make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or altogether change the subject. A shoot the shit is used in lieu of seeing psychologist to help you cope. The shoot the shit is far more effective, and you won’t have to pay $150 /hr. to a jackass who majored in psychology so they could understand themselves.

So, let’s shoot the shit…

How many of you heard of cultivated meats, I’m not talking about what in your pants. Better yet how many of you heard of cultivated meat?

Cultivated meat, also known as cultured meat, is genuine animal meat (including seafood and organ meats) produced by cultivating animal cells directly in a lab. This production method eliminates the need to raise and farm animals for food. Cultivated meat is lab grown meat there is no animal cells involved.  Are you digesting this?

What is the benefit?

Traditional beef production makes lots of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide, so-called greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. Lab-grown meat could reduce these emissions significantly.

Are you saying, “you’ve got to be shitting me.” No, as that would result in methane and global warming.

Well folks an Israeli company called BELIEVER Meats is opening a large cultivated meats plant in North Carolina.  Here’s the company’s press release.

“Our facility propels BELIEVER forward as a leader in the cultivated meat industry,” says Nicole Johnson-Hoffman, CEO of BELIEVER Meats. “Our brand has continually proven our commitment to scale production technology and capacity, and with our new U.S. production center, we are one step closer to commercialization. BELIEVER is setting the standard globally to make it possible for future generations to eat and enjoy meat.”

The company explored several well-established manufacturing corridors in Eastern North Carolina because of its highly qualified talent pool and the region’s success in integrating technology-driven solutions to improve the lives of residents, which aligns with the company’s mission.

“We’re pleased to welcome Believer Meats to North Carolina,” said North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. “This important decision to build its first U.S. commercialization operation in Wilson County validates our innovative research and development and highly skilled talent while further cementing our state as the best in the nation to do business.”

BELIEVER is making an initial planned investment of $123.35 million in Wilson County, located approximately 40 miles east of Raleigh, N.C., and includes plans to create over 100 new jobs over the next three years. The facility will utilize proprietary, custom-made bioreactors that can achieve high cell densities and yield based on patented processes. In addition, the state-of-the-art facility will feature an R&D and innovation center, a contemporary kitchen to host tastings, as well as offices and conference room spaces.

“We celebrate this milestone and are thrilled to see the North Carolina and Wilson County officials and community providing critically important support to scale cultivated meat production. These steps pave the way for cultivated meat to come to market in the U.S. at scale and helps ensure as many consumers as possible have access to these groundbreaking products,” says Liz Specht, Ph.D., Vice President of Science and Technology at the Good Food Institute (GFI). “Further government investment like this will advance the sector toward commercialization, helping to feed a growing population more sustainably, spurring economic growth, and improving environmental and global health outcomes.”

The facility’s groundbreaking is the latest in a series of developments as BELIEVER prepares to bring its products to consumers, including its recent rebrand from Future Meat Technologies to BELIEVER Meats, its R&D breakthrough with cultivating lamb, and the creation of a global leadership team, to name a few. 

“Today’s announcement is another example of the growth, progress and increased interest in this cutting-edge industry,” says Robert Rankin, Executive Director of the Association for Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Innovation (AMPS). “Members of AMPS Innovation look forward to continued advancements in this industry to support commercialization of cultivated meat, poultry and seafood.”

“The future of food starts with what we do today, and we are on the path to creating the change we seek,” continues Johnson-Hoffman. “Through affordability, approachability, and availability, we want our products to become the meat of choice globally, and with the announcement of our new production facility, we are well on our way.”
