Driving real change

In an interview with vegconomist, Simon Fried, Business Development Executive at MeaTech, stated, “We go to work knowing what we are doing has the potential to drive real change…We believe cultured meat and other new food technologies, like precision fermentation, will ultimately change the relationship between food production and agriculture. Tomorrow’s agriculture will probably require much less land, have a much smaller environmental footprint, and ensure more local and flexible supply.”
