Cultured meat, produced in bioreactors without the slaughter of an animal, has been approved for sale by a regulatory authority for the first time. The development has been hailed as a landmark moment across the meat industry.

The cells used to start the process came from a cell bank and did not require the slaughter of a chicken because cells can be taken from biopsies of live animals. The nutrients supplied to the growing cells were all from plants.

It's an interesting question. For cells taken from dead animals I imagine it would depend on whether the animal was slaughtered in a halal manner.

As for living animals, I would imagine it's permissible due to the fact they are living.

However, as always, it's something the fuqaha will need to study and confirm.
