Cleaning our hands of dirty factory farming: The future of meat production is almost here
It is clear that the current ways of producing meat and dairy products are unsustainable. 26% of Earth's habitable land is already used for livestock grazing, and the calorie input to output ratio for meat production is an economist's nightmare; it takes 9 calories of feed to produce 1 calorie of chicken meat, and that ratio gets higher for pork and beef.
How are we are expected to feed 9.7 billion people by 2050 using these existing methods? And can Australia lead the way in the clean meat revolution?
