As foie gras is a classic yet controversial favorite in France, French start-up Suprême is introducing a cruelty-free foie gras that's ethically made. The company's French pâté is made from cells that are extracted from a duck egg, which are grown by being supplied with nutrients and healthy fats. According to Suprême, the creation of its next-gen foie gras involves no GMO ingredients, genetic manipulation, antibiotics, or the killing or mistreatment of any animal.
While a number of mainstream vegan and meat brands are now creating plant-based products for the masses, a handful of innovators are also reinventing luxury animal products and by-products to be cruelty-free and without controversy. Like Suprême, many start-ups are creating realistic, clean and eco-friendly meat alternatives that bypass factory farming.
