Upside Foods is holding a one-night-only ‘Freedom of Food’ pop-up to taste its cultured chicken product in Miami, Florida, US.


The event will take place on 27 June, just days before Florida’s ban on cell-based meat comes into effect, on 1 July.


In a statement, Upside Foods said: “This is your first – and last – chance to taste cultivated meat in Florida. The event is first-come, first-served and there will be limited quantities available, so be sure to arrive early.”


An Upside spokesperson told The Cell Base:

"Upside is hosting a one-night-only pop-up event to celebrate the future of food and advocate for food freedom. We wanted to give Floridians an opportunity to experience cultivated meat before it is banned in the state."

The statement continued: "This event is co-hosted by The Brick and Timber Collective, whose landlord, Jesse Feldman, graciously offered their building to host this event in support of innovation and in disagreement with the ban."


Chef Mika Leon, of restaurant Caja Caliente, will prepare around 75 tasting servings of Upside's cultivated chicken fillet in a Cuban-style, with the final dish yet to be announced.

To gain entry, guests are asked to sign Upside's Change.org petition. Once admitted, guests will be served food, drinks and product samples.


To enter, Upside Foods will ask those queuing to show their signature on the change.org petition or to sign the petition at the door.


In a statement provided to The Cell Base, Upside Foods said: “To our knowledge, this is the first-time cultivated meat will be offered to the public for tasting free of charge. Our cultivated chicken will be prepared by local chef Mika Leon.”
