China's artificial meat industry is in a rapid development stage.


The Ipsos Report shows that news about artificial meat in China has created a wave of public opinion online over the past year, for example, the first artificial meat mooncake was launched last September and has generated more than 300 million discussions on mainstream social media platforms.


More than 90% of Chinese consumers have heard of artificial meat, and consumer attitudes toward it are polarized. Some are curious about the hidden high technology and are willing to buy it, while others are not interested in it and consider it a marketing gimmick.


From the data, first- and second-tier consumers are more interested in artificial meat. 86% of consumers said they would change their meat consumption habits after the new crown epidemic. 

2. Artificial Meat Startups in China


And with the continued rise of domestic artificial meat startups such as Starfield, Zhenmeat, Heymaet and Vesta, artificial meat-related pizzas, mooncakes, cutlets and patties have been launched.

3. Foreign Food Giants

Foreign food giants have also begun to capture the market for China's artificial meat industry, for example,

KFC has joined hands with Cargill to launch artificial meat chicken nuggets.

Starbucks has joined hands with Beyond Meat and others to launch five new dishes of artificial meat, which to a certain extent has played a role in stimulating the development of domestic artificial meat enterprises and has also promoted a change in Chinese consumers' perception of artificial meat.
