Recent primary culture findings of mammary gland epithelial cells have taken the lead for creation of ex vivo lactation system for cell-based milk production. This technology combined with genetic and environmental manipulation enable the modeling of mammary gland organogenesis and lactation processes in a dish. This results to production of personalized and functional milk-like products or bioactive components through cell-based approach. Despite the challenges involved in this process pose significant barriers to commercialization of cellular agriculture for meat and milk production, there are also opportunities that are worth exploring.
