Migros has invested in an Israeli start-up, Aleph Farms, which specializes in lab-grown meat. Aleph Farms is able to reproduce different types of beef cells, such as muscle, fat, and blood vessel cells, to create a structure that closely resembles that of a conventional cut of meat.

In December 2018, the company unveiled its first lab-grown minute steak. The lab-grown steak is at least three to four years away from commercial sale, according to Didier Toubia, the co-founder and chief executive of Aleph Farms.
