Eat Just, Inc., a San Francisco-based startup that applies cutting-edge science and technology to create healthier, more sustainable foods, and foodpanda, Asia's leading food and grocery delivery platform, have partnered on the world’s first home delivery of cultured meat.
Three dishes featuring high-quality cellbased chicken GOOD Meat will be available for delivery on the foodpanda platform kicking off on Earth Day, April 22, for a limited period of time in Singapore.
Eat Just’s GOOD Meat brand follows the company’s history-making December restaurant debut. Weeks prior, Singapore became the first country to approve cultured meat, which is real, high-quality meat made from animal cells.
Starting from Thursday, April 22, diners will be able to place orders for the following chef-crafted GOOD Meat Cultured Chicken dishes via the foodpanda app: Chicken & Rice with coconut rice, pak choi, sweet chili, chrysanthemums, microgreens; Katsu Chicken Curry with jasmine rice, heritage carrots, micro shiso, edible flowers; Chicken Caesar Salad with kale, romaine, edible flowers, shaved radish, plant-based Caesar dressing.
The dishes are prepared by Singapore’s 1880, the first establishment chosen to serve cultured meat to customers, and will now be the first to have GOOD Meat dishes delivered by foodpanda. GOOD Meat and foodpanda plan to collaborate with additional restaurants in Singapore to offer new dishes for delivery in the months to come. Starting in mid-May, GOOD Meat selections from JW Marriott Singapore South Beach will be available on the platform.
The exclusive GOOD Meat dishes will be available to customers who are within 1880’s delivery zone. Eeach order is packaged in an eco-friendly box made from sustainable bamboo fibre and resin, delivered by foodpanda riders on e-bikes.
A Google Cardboard headset is included in every order. Customers will also enjoy a 360-degree immersive film that connects the delivery of GOOD Meat to the protection, preservation and restoration of our planet’s wild spaces.
To date, hundreds of diners at 1880 have been treated to an interactive journey through the past, present and future of our food system and a multi-course meal including globally inspired cultured chicken dishes. Through GOOD Meat and foodpanda’s partnership, many more will now be able to have a similar experience in the comfort of their own homes.
“Bringing GOOD Meat directly to the homes of people in Singapore with foodpanda is another historically important step in our journey to build a safer, healthier food system,” said Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of Eat Just.
“Food is at the core of our business, and ensuring that we have a sustainable food ecosystem is an important agenda for us. foodpanda is thrilled to be the first platform in the world to deliver cultured meat dishes so that customers in Singapore can be the world’s first diners to enjoy them from the comforts of their home,” said Jakob Angele, CEO of foodpanda APAC. “Together with Eat Just, we hope to bring this to more markets - not just in Asia but also in every country in the world where Delivery Hero brands operate.”
Reactions around cultured meat have been positive since GOOD Meat’s launch in Singapore in December 2020.
According to research, 70% of Singaporeans who have sampled GOOD Meat said that it tasted as good, or better than conventional chicken, and nearly 90% of those diners said they would replace conventional chicken with cultured chicken.
