The Food Revolution. A meeting with Stanisław Łoboziak, popularizer of science and expert on the cell-based meat production following the screening of the film MEAT THE FUTURE, dir. Liz Marshall
In Polish only
A true food revolution is about to take place on our plates. Cell-based meat, created without breeding or slaughtering animals, may change people's thinking about food culture. Vegetarian meat is an alternative for all those who do not consider beans, chickpeas or peas a substitute. Special technology makes it exceptionally juicy, which accounts for the high scores in sensory quality assessment. In addition, it is GMO-free, contains no artificial preservatives and often no sugar, but most importantly, it is better for the planet. But how is it produced? Will everyone be cultivating meat in their kitchens soon?
