Four years ago when the organization long equated with the vegan lifestyle said it would give $1 million to any scientist who could make chicken in a laboratory, there were some willing to bet no one would meet the group’s challenge.



Now with that deadline fast approaching, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) may indeed have to pay the reward. Somewhat suddenly, in vitro meat is attracting investment and research talent from around the world.

In vitro or cultured meat is not imitation meat — like all those vegetable-protein products that don’t taste anything like beef or chicken. In vitro or lab-grown meat is animal flesh, except it never was part of a living animal.
