Imagine a world where real meat is produced sustainably without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals. This is no longer science fiction, it’s now within reach. At the forefront of this urgent frontier is Mayo Clinic trained cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Upside Foods (previously Memphis Meats), the leading start-up of the “cultivated” meat revolution. From the world’s first meatball which cost $18,000 per pound to the first chicken fillet and duck a l'orange for half the cost, the film follows Valeti and his team over five years as the cost of production plummets, and consumers’ eye the imminent birth of this timely industry.
Exploring a game changing solution, Meat the Future is a must-see!

"In 2016, I was looking to follow a solution-focused story, and came across the emergence of "cellular agriculture". After meeting Dr. Uma Valeti, co-founder and CEO of Upside Foods (previously Memphis Meats), I felt certain there was a film. Over the next five years, our lens was situated at the forefront of a historic and hopeful movement of change. What the future holds for cultivated meat is unclear, but I believe its revolutionary journey into the world will stand the test of time." - Liz Marshall
