Culturing an appetite; advances in 3D bioprinting

Throughout Veganuary, we are looking at the technologies that is taking us beyond animal agriculture.

As a walk around any supermarket in the UK will attest, the number of plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products is growing almost daily.

No longer confined to the specialist shops of 20 years ago, plant-based alternatives have spread and fully colonized the mainstream, driven by an increased awareness of the ethical and environmental ramifications of animal agriculture.

However, for many consumers, these products are not yet convincing enough for them to make the switch away from slaughter-derived products.

If closer facsimiles were possible, with lower environmental impacts and without the need to kill, consumer uptake could increase further.
