Juicy lab-grown steaks and burgers made of plant-based meat could soon be tempting hardened carnivores scanning restaurant menus in the world's biggest cities, as food producers explore fresh ways to feed booming populations. With people pouring into cities across the developing world, rocketing demand for meat and dairy products will make it essential to find high-protein alternatives that have a lower environmental impact, some experts say."You'll be able to create food you can store and transport easily," said Ido Savir, chief executive of Israeli firm SuperMeat, whose cultured chicken will be kosher and halal.The technology will help feed people in developing countries who now consume almost no meat or have a poor-quality diet, he added.Top U.S. meat processor Tyson Foods has set up a $150 million fund to develop cheap, alternative protein sources and invested in plant-based meat company Beyond Meat.Methods like precision agriculture, tailored to the exact requirements of crops, could make production more efficient, while using more renewable energy would cut carbon emissions, said Bellu.Diets also need to become better balanced to cut overeating, especially of meat, while increasing the amount of animal protein available to the poor, he added.
