What is a post-animal economy? What if we could feed and clothe the world with animal products without killing a single animal? The nascent field of cellular agriculture promises such a future by using cell cultures to produce meat (aka cultured meat, clean meat, or in-vitro meat) and other agricultural products such as milk, eggs, and leather. This panel brings together a CEO, an animal welfare advocate, a philosopher, a venture capitalist, and a journalist to consider what cellular agriculture means for the future of food.
