Meat the Future is a timely documentary about “cell-based” meat, also referred to as “cultivated” meat, a food science that grows real meat from animal cells in a controlled and clean environment; a revolution in food production, proposing a sustainable way to feed the world in the future without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals. At the forefront of this urgent new frontier is cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Memphis Meats, one of the leading start-ups in the field. From a meatball which cost $18,000 per pound in 2016 to the world’s first cell-based poultry in 2017 for half the cost, the film follows Valeti over three years as the cost of production continues to plummet and consumers eye the birth of this industry.
