TED talks: leather and meat without killing animals – Andras Forgacs


In 30 years, when humans look back at how we currently raise and slaughter billions of animals to make our hamburgers and handbags, they will see it as both “wasteful” and “crazy“, according to Andras Forgacs in this week’s featured TED talk.

Forgacs, co-founder and CEO of biomaterials firm Modern Meadow, says maintaining current models of meat, dairy, eggs and leather production is unsustainable in the long-term.

He offers a different way, involving the biofabrication of meat and leather, in a civilised fashion, so that animals are not born and raised purely for human consumption or fashion.
