Cultivated meat has garnered significant attention as a protein source that can meet consumer needs with a reduced impact on the planet. That potential is real. Further investment, ingenuity, and commitment are likely needed to move this concept from a novel small-batch product to one of the tempting protein options on millions, if not billions, of people’s plates.
Not much has been revealed about “The Future of Meat” episode — which is set to arrive on Netflix in November — although, in the trailer, the clean meat industry is discussed. It is likely that vegan meat will also be discussed.“Cultured meat isn’t any different than conventional meat,” says Josh Tetrick — co-founder and CEO of JUST — in the trailer. “The only difference is, you don’t need to kill the animal.”
