Forum: Growing Real Beef Without the Moo
From RMI Video
The growing human population is increasing demand for food, and rising incomes are raising demand for meat. Cultured meat, meat grown in a lab from animal cells, could be key to the rising food insecurity, as well as reducing our environmental, ethical, and health impact. UC Davis has the skills to tackle this challenge. David Block, Ernest Gallo Endowed Chair in Vilticulture and Enology, and Eric Schulze, Vice President of Product and Regulation at Memphis Meats, will discuss UC Davis’ exciting new campus research program on cultured meats, the key technical hurdles to commercialization, consumer perception issues, regulatory challenges, the social benefits of cultured meat, and where it is being sold.
