Billionaires are investing in the future of food. They look for it in the modified meat. With it, they want to kill three birds with one stone. Namely, not only to make food much cheaper, more accessible and ultimately end the problem of hunger in the world, but also to reduce the problem of climate change and, of course, to get rich. Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are unable to sleep at night because of this.
The world population is growing rapidly. In 2023, 8 billion people will live on Earth. Eating meat leads to the devastation of forests and the transformation of farmland into pasture. As a result, the problem with access to food, instead of getting smaller, gets bigger. This sad reality is intended to help transform the meat from the test tube, which requires only small laboratories to develop, is completely environmentally friendly and, most importantly for humans, free of antibiotics.
Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson have invested their millions of dollars in Nature’s Fynd, Memphis Meats, and other smaller startups that have several patents to produce delicious, healthy, and looking real meat from the test tube. It should be emphasized that Tyson Foods, the second largest meat producer in the world, also became interested in this type of food.
Nature’s Fynd specializes in the production of organic food in the form of meat-free burgers, dairy-free cheeses and nuggets without the addition of poultry meat. The products are based on Fusarium strain flavolapis microbes, found in the hot springs of Yellowstone Park. Fy contains 10 times less fat than beef, and 50 percent more protein than, for example, tofu.
Meanwhile, Memphis Meats engineers are working to improve their artificial meat production technology using the famous method of gene modification called CRISPR-Cas9. They want to combine the best tissues of beef and poultry to obtain a top-class product. Such technology allows to eliminate the problem of fatigue and slaughter of farm animals. Scientists will only take the appropriate part of animal tissues once, and then they will be cloned indefinitely and matured in special laboratories. Animal rights activists will especially appreciate this.
Products based on artificial meat from the laboratory and plant ingredients have been available for some time in stores in the United States and several European countries, including Poland. Soon, they will also include new generation products that are much more nutritious and ecological, improved thanks to the CRISPR method. The quality of this food, in terms of appearance, taste and smell, does not differ from traditional ones, and at the same time it is based on real ecology.
Although such food of the future still raises a lot of controversy, in the face of the rapidly growing world population and the growing problem of hunger, it is the only sensible panacea for the problems plaguing mankind with food. At least that’s what the billionaires involved in the project say and believe.
