Planetary limits on farming will accelerate a post-meat future. Are plants the only path, or can we grow meat without raising animals? And what does it mean for food when we can grow any meat we want to eat in a brewer’s vat? We explore the sustainability of raising animals for meat with Main Sequence General Partner Phil Morle, and v2Food CEO Nick Hazell, then take a look at a whole new method of ‘cultured meat’ – growing it in vats – with VOW Food CEO George Peppou.
