The Future of Meat
Livestock is responsible for 15 percent of global greenhouse emissions. Could meat grown in labs offer a sustainable – and palatable – future? Didier Toubia, CEO and co-founder of cultured meat start-up Aleph Farms, joins Azeem Azhar to explore the biotech, ethics, and economics of making beef without cows.
They also discuss:
- Why food security and public health are driving the development of alternative protein sources.
- Why cultivated meat may achieve price parity with normal beef within five years.
- How cultivated meat might integrate within the existing food supply chains.
