Traditional animal husbandry in the near future will not be able to cope with the needs of the rapidly growing population of the Earth. To help him come the "meat from the tube."
FACT. The growing number of vegetarians, as well as people concerned about the "health" of the planet, has a great influence on the development of the sphere of artificial food. Several startups are working to reduce the cost of artificial meat and make it accessible to the consumer. According to forecasts, by 2020, synthesized food can enter the diet of millions of people.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Artificial meat is grown in laboratories. The original cells are taken from animals, but this procedure is carried out only once. “Test tube meat” is grown in the form of minced meat, but in the future it is planned to create a full-fledged muscle tissue. Today, about 10 companies, including three Israeli, are engaged in the production of synthesized meat in bioreactors.
PRICE. Five years ago, the cost of artificial meat was too high: 1 kilogram cost 10 thousand dollars. Now, thanks to Israeli technology, the price has dropped significantly and a kilogram of meat costs producers $ 800. According to forecasts by Professor Yaakov Nakhmias from the meat-growing company Future Meat Technologies, by 2020 it will be possible to reduce the price of products to 5-10 dollars per kilogram.
PROSPECTS. As it became known, the largest American supplier of meat, which provides raw materials for McDonald’s and BurgerKing, has already invested several million dollars in the development of an Israeli startup. This is not surprising, because artificial meat will significantly reduce the cost of raw materials. The Chinese also invested in the company, who are forced to buy large quantities of meat every year.
One of the main advantages of the Israeli company is the taste of the products they produce: synthesized meat has a natural taste and aroma.
HOW WILL IT WORK? If the startup manages to reduce the cost of production, then the cultivation of meat will occur as follows. The company will supply equipment for growing tissue, animal cells and essential nutrients to farmers. Farmers will be engaged in growing fabrics, which will take about two weeks. After that, the fabrics will be sent to factories, where they will be turned into meat.
WHAT ARE THE NATURAL MEAT? Despite the prospects of this trend, experts note that traditional livestock as an industry will not disappear. There will be a high demand for natural products on the planet, but the rapid growth of population and consumption requires new solutions from humanity.
Test-tube meat will appear on the shelves of supermarkets very soon. However, the researchers are ready to go even further by creating mini-devices that will allow growing meat at home.
