Response

While 66.4 percent of participants indicated that they were '(probably or definitely) willing to try clean meat' -  52.8 percent indicated that they'd be willing to replace conventional meat entirely.

A similar study conducted by Wilks and Phillips in 2017 also showed approximately two thirds of respondents were willing to try the new product - at 65.3 percent.

The Faunalytics survey also determined participants' willingness to pay more for lab-grown meat.

The results indicated that, one consumers were informed of standard procedures in animal agriculture - such as the use of hormones and antibiotics - most were willing to pay more for clean meat.
