New Year, New Meat: Growing Steak Without Cows!

In 2050, meat demand will increase by 70%, a rate that our planet can’t presently sustain using current agriculture methods. We simply don’t have the resources to produce meat at that supply. But what if there was a way to produce meat that meets the demand, and that uses 99% less land, 96% less water and produces 96% less greenhouse gas?

What’s the Solution?
The answer is to produce all of the delicious animal products through sustainable methods: cellular agriculture. Cellular agriculture is the food of the future. It’s the production of products, using once living or currently living cells. This technology can be used for the growth of animal products in labs using cell cultures, instead of raising animals. This will revolutionize the food industry and fix our meat demand problem.
