A food technology company in California is aiming to recruit 100 taste-testers to sample its slaughter-free bacon.

Mission Barns is planning a week-long taste-testing event for its new bacon product, which is made from a combination of plant-based ingredients and cultured animal cells.

“We definitely are looking for a diverse set of folks in terms of palates and backgrounds,” said Eitan Fischer, co-founder of Mission Barns.

Fischer added that the company is looking for, a combination of “High end chefs,” and “everyday people who really know and really like bacon.”

Mission Barns was established in 2018 by Fischer and David Bowman. The duo have created the bacon using animal cells that have been grown in a laboratory, meaning the final product is considered “slaughter-free.”

The company has teamed up with two restaurants in California for the taste-tests, with participants to be served meals made with the plant-based bacon.
