Paul Shapiro gives you a front-row seat for the wild story of the race to create and commercialize cleaner, safer, sustainable meat—real meat—without the animals. From the entrepreneurial visionaries to the scientists’ workshops to the big business boardrooms—Shapiro details that quest for clean meat and other animal products and examines the debate raging around it.
The trillion-dollar meat industry is one of our greatest environmental hazards; it pollutes more than all the world’s fossil-fuel-powered cars. Global animal agriculture is responsible for deforestation, soil erosion, and more emissions than air travel, paper mills, and coal mining combined. It also, of course, depends on the slaughter of more than 60 billion animals per year, a number that is only increasing as the global appetite for meat swells.

A webinar with Dr Minh Ha from University of Melbourne.
In this webinar, he delivers a short lecture on what exactly meat is and how we can use novel food techniques (cellular agriculture) to make meat sustainably and ethically.
We then step inside Australia’s bespoke lab facilities at University of Melbourne, which specialises in meat science and cellular agriculture research.
We end with a Q&A panel with Dr Ha, Brodie and Kieren, moderated by Cellular Agriculture Australia’s Founder Dr Bianca Lê.
