Abstract: With the rapid development of cultivated meat and related industries around the globe, comprehensively analyzing the existing problems and bottlenecks in this field and drawing on the experience of developed European countries and the United States are of great significance for future food development in China. This paper highlights the necessity of developing cultured meat in China in order to alleviate the stress of breeding industries, ensure the safety of meat supply and improve the development level of food science and technology. The current status of the development of cultured meat in developed European countries, the United States and Japan is reviewed with respect to capital investment, regulation and technological development, and the experience that these counties provide to China is summarized. Furthermore, the problems facing the development of this area in our country such as imperfect integration of disciplines, industrial environment, supervisory laws and regulations and key technologies are discussed, and countermeasures and suggestions are proposed for development planning of cultured meat, seeking breakthrough in key technologies, cultivating superior enterprises, and establishing a supervision system.

Key words: cultivated meat, food in the future, strategic thinking, countermeasures and suggestions
