The Vegan America Project (VAP) has published a research paper of interest to vegans and non-vegans alike. Author and VAP coordinator Martin Rowe delves into food science and food justice as the market for sustainable food grows. Beyond Impossible: The Futures of Plant-Based and Cellular Meat and Dairy envisions a future of lasting climate change resilience.
Beyond Impossible begins with the historical context, current landscape, and challenges surrounding the development of both plant-based food and cellular agriculture. These include consumer biases against veganism and questions about the health and safety of genetically engineered foods. Its focus, though, is on what is yet to come. Environmental, ethical, and health-related concerns continue to spark innovation in plant-based and cellular meat and dairy.
The paper emphasizes the importance of varied engagement, arguing that many people, from environmentalists to rural development specialists, have vested interests in the success of plant-based and cellular meat and dairy companies. It’s an intriguing read for anyone who cares about creating a healthier, more compassionate, and more environmentally sustainable world.
