XPRIZE Feed the Next Billion is a $15M competition that will incentivize teams to produce chicken breast or fish fillet alternatives that replicate or outperform conventional chicken and fish in: access, environmental sustainability, animal welfare, nutrition and health, as well as taste and texture.
The winning team will develop multiple consistent cuts of chicken breast or fish fillet alternatives (85-115 grams / 3-4 ounces) that replicate the sensory properties, structure, versatility, and nutritional profile of conventional chicken or fish, while having a minimal environmental footprint. A bonus prize will be awarded to the team that develops a scalable whole-animal-origin-free growth media at the lowest production cost and that uses this media to produce their final product.
