Memphis Meats – An Overview
The food industry is one of the most lucrative and competitive industries on the face of the earth.
In particular, meat farming is proving to be especially competitive, as the demand for meat is currently greater than ever before.
There are, however, several major downsides associated with the meat manufacturing industry.
Meat agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change, not to mention the fact that questionable farming and manufacturing processes are believed to be partially responsible at least, for numerous health issues plaguing the human race.
It is clear, then, that the need for a healthier, more natural, greener alternative is greater than ever before.
The solution could come in the form of companies such as Memphis Meats. But how? Well, let’s take a look.
Who are Memphis Meats?
Memphis Meats are a meat manufacturing company, but not as you know them.
You see, Memphis Meats are committed to providing greener, healthier, and tastier meat products. Best of all is the fact that they are able to provide meat, without raising and slaughtering animals for their flesh.
But how? Well, by introducing cell-based meat. Science fiction has now reached science fact!
Meat, but not as you know it
When people tuck into a thick and juicy steak, they’re able to eat this steak because a cow has been raised and slaughtered for its meat. When people eat fast food burgers, they get to eat these burgers as a result of cattle being raised for their meat, largely on deforested land.
The cattle raised on these cattle farms also produce an enormous amount of methane gas. This is a leading contributor to climate change.
The meat offered by companies such as Memphis Meats, however, is very different. Or at least, it is manufactured in a very different way, but it tastes just as great, if not better, than the real thing. The meat provided by Memphis Meats, is created from the cells of living, healthy animals. It is basically ‘grown’ rather than killed and butchered.
How is the meat created?
Cells are the building blocks of all living creatures, including the animals which are commonly raised and killed for their meat.
The meat made by Memphis Meats is created when they obtain cells from healthy, living animals, (a sort of biopsy), and then work their scientific magic to cultivate these cells and transform them into meat.
Some people have said that this ‘Frankenmeat’ is a disgusting idea. That seems odd to me! I wonder if any of these people have witnessed what really happens in an industrial slaughterhouse? (Here’s a clue; Hell on earth!!!)
This offers numerous advantages. To begin with, it will save the lives of countless animals, whilst also helping to bring down emissions and help prevent climate change.
Because of the quality of the meat, and the fact that it has not been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics, and/or raised in unsanitary conditions, the meat will also be of a much higher quality and will be far more nutritious.
Memphis Meats created history back in 2016, when they created the world’s first cell-based meatball, and they have gone from strength to strength ever since.
