Cellular agriculture is the production of commodities (e.g., meat, dairy) from cell cultures rather than whole organisms. For example, meat can be grown by culturing muscle cells and fat cells from livestock species in bioreactors - instead of breeding, raising and slaughtering animals. Cultured meat technology is similar to the technology used today for synthetic biology, recombinant protein production and cell therapies. Any animal product (e.g., eggs, collagen) can theoretically be made from cellular agriculture. Developing and scaling such innovations could alleviate many of the negative externalities associated with traditional food production systems such as public health epidemics, environmental degradation, and animal welfare concerns.
