The Future of Meat

Memphis Meats is a brand new company that is planning to do to the meat industry what the car did to the horse and buggy. Cultured meat (meat grown in a lab) will completely replace the status quo and make raising animals to eat them simply unthinkable. Uma Valeti, the CEO of the company, a cardiologist who trained at the Mayo Clinic, is associate professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota and president of the Twin Cities American Heart Association, is the pioneer of growing meat outside a live animal. Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who provided $330,000 to fund the world?s first cultured hamburger, describes cultured meat as a technology with ?the capability to transform how we view our world.? The company?s products will be free of antibiotics, fecal matter, pathogens, and other contaminants found in conventional meat.
