Dubai Future Forum hosted a groundbreaking food tasting session titled “Putting the Future of Food to the Taste Test,” offering 30 selected visitors a unique experience of sampling animal-free and lab-grown alternatives. The event showcased a range of products, from cheesecake to chocolate, all produced through innovative technologies.

One notable highlight was Formo’s lab-made cheese, crafted using precision fermentation, making it lactose-free and animal-free. Visitors expressed delight at the quality and taste of the cheese varieties, including feta, brie, cream cheese, and scrambled eggs.
