Default Richard Branson and Bill Gates invest millions into a startup that grows synthetic meat

(and it could be on our shelves in just two years)

Venture capital firm DFJ secured the financial support for Memphis Meats
The 'clean meat' firm has already produced beef, chicken and duck from cells
It hopes to quadruple its headcount and has already begun growing its team
Scaling up production should drive down costs and bring 'clean meat' to market


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...lean-meat.html


Test tube meat (pictured) has taken a step closer to becoming
a commercial reality, thanks to a £13 million ($17 million)
investment. Memphis Meats plans to use the funds to continue
developing its products and to accelerate its work in scaling up
'clean meat' production



Memphis Meats said in March it had developed the world's first
chicken strip cultivated from self-reproducing poultry cells in a
laboratory (pictured)


Well, I have to admit I'm curious to try it though I don't think I'd want a steady diet of it.

Don't we all know at least one person whose highest purpose would be serving as Soylent Green?
