“I believe that in 30 years or so we will no longer need to kill any animals and that all meat will either be clean or plant-based, taste the same and also be much healthier for everyone.”

There are numerous companies similar to Memphis meats that are Meats trying to replicate meat cells, and there are other companies that have pursued a path to try and replicate the taste of meat with plants.
