The next agricultural revolution is coming to your plate.
Meat produced from cells, without animal slaughter, will change the way we think about food. Meat the Future is a timely documentary about ‘cultured meat’, a food science that grows real meat from animal cells in a controlled environment, free from disease and infection. A revolution in food production, proposing a sustainable way to feed the world in the future – without the need to raise, breed and slaughter animals. At the frontline of this new and urgent frontier is cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, co-founder and CEO of Memphis Meats, one of the industry’s leading start-ups. From a meatball that cost $18,000 a pound in 2016 to the world’s first “clean” chicken fillet in 2017 for half the cost, the film follows Valeti for three years as the cost of production continues to fall and consumers look at the rise of this industry .
