The consumption of meat has been under strict scrutiny in the recent past. This phenomenon has affected the production and consumption of meat, globally. It is observed, the increasing demand for slaughtered-meat resulted in an increase in food borne illnesses, ecological problems, and factory farming. Therefore, this led to the technological evolution of the In-vitro meat culture. An expected increase in meat consumption has been proposed by several international actors and in several Government policies and thus there exists pressing need to devolve and understand the actual viability of the new process. This comparative research is limited to the existing and evolving legal regime of the United States and the EU. Hence, investment in in-vitro meat culture is cumulatively increasing. Recent reports of World Economic Forum emphasized that this innovation of Science and Technology in in-vitro meat culture shall result in a Fourth Industrial Revolution. TIFAC in India is working on the technology growth for in-vitro meat.The study shall give an insight into the legal regime concerning the production, trade, and consumption of cultured meat, and its effects in India. Further, this research draws a nexus with international instruments and policy, and its acceptance in the US and the EU. Through this study we have uncovered the glaring disparity in legalisation of the process in different parts of the world and have also tried to make relevant suggestions for India to break the chains of research and examine the culture through economic means.
