It not so long ago that the first laboratory produced beef burger was hailed as either a break though in the production of meat or an expensive waste of time!
Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle that they combined to make the burger. Since 2013 scientists have advanced this technology and are already producing laboratory produced milk and meat that has never seen the light of day.
Is this is dawn of the next agricultural revolution or just pie in the sky? Could this development impact on your business in the future?
Listen to Dr. Marianne Ellis of the University of Bath who will be discussing the latest advancements in this area and whether this will be a realistic proposition at Agribusiness 2016 “Accelerating the agriculture and food agenda”.
The conference takes place on the 11 November in Peterborough with a pre-conference networking supper on the 10 November.
