    The biggest revolution you might never have heard of...yet!

    As some on here may know Iím rather more interested in what technology will do to transform our lives than the (largely) nonsense that comes from all of the politicians.

    One trend I have been following is cellular agriculture. Iím convinced this will fundamentally change the world.

    Iíve backed that theory with putting some of my hard earned into AIM listed Agronomics but many people are still sceptical or more commonly simply just unaware of the whole technology.

    However when I see the likes of George Monbiot coming out and saying the following Iím even more sure that we stand at the beginning of one of the most disruptive revolutions the world will ever see:

    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.t...ng-save-planet

    The interesting thing is that these approaches are 100% proven and the race is now on for commerciality. Thatís expected to come as early as next year for the companies in the vanguard.

    I find it absolutely flabbergasting that we can be standing on the cusp of such a global transformation not just in agriculture but the vast impact it will have on the environment, livelihoods and the ability to affordably feed the planet and yet almost anyone I mention this to has never heard of it!

    For anyone interested in finding out more google BlueNalu, Modern Meadow, Solar Foods (Finland) or have a look at the Agronomics portfolio page...this stuff really blew my mind!

    Wow! I'd never heard of that. Well, I'd heard of the lab grown protein.

    I guess the proof will be in the eating, but it doesn't have me drooling at my keyboard desperate to try it.

    otoh, in maccy d's and so on, who would know? Hope they can roll it out speedily while there's still some rainforest left ...

    Aha well to be fair I should have expected the learned occupants of the Holy Ground to have heard of it I suppose ;-)

    I must admit that prior to doing more investigation I was aware that someone had produced a hamburger a few years ago and was vaguely aware of lab protein but really didnít understand the scale of what had been going on or itís vast potential for disruption.

    As for the yuck factor I reckon that will quickly dissipate. What would people prefer with regards to a food produced in a fully controlled environment thatís 100% bio similar to the product they currently consume or something thatís came from a live animal thatís needed to be slaughtered and pass through a vast supply chain? And thatís before you consider plastic polluted seas or meat that comes from animals given pharmaceuticals and the like.

    To me knowing that there is the very real potential that the world could eat as much fish as it wants without the need for a single trawler, or as much milk as it wants without keeping millions of cows constantly impregnated, or beef without the need for a single head of cattle to be reared and slaughtered is just phenomenal!

    I watched something last year about a lab grown chicken nugget - I assume it was this or similar. The presenter thought it tasted just like a normal chicken nugget.

    I agree that it all sounds like very good news considering the current environmental crisis we're in too! Be interesting to see how quickly they can mass produce food from the technique.

    Very interesting, but doubt that the new food will be as cheap as claimed. In my lifetime I've heard that electricity from nuclear energy will be too cheap to bother metering, and that plastic will be virtually free. And what about the moral rights of the microbes? Everything's entitled to a life free from exploitation.

    Oh dear! When you see how the vast majority of chicken nuggets are made...

    Next they'll be trying to emulate the grey coloured sludge used to fill scotch pies.

    That is an eye opener of an article for sure. I'm not so sure the tastes and textures will be all that for a long time, if ever, but there is a vast market for all the stuff that that really doesn't matter for.

    Good point! Come to think of it, the last time I had chicken nuggets it was when my girlfriend didn't want to finish them and even I (who would usually eat anything to avoid throwing it in the bin) stopped after 1.

    I think indoor farming will also take off in the next 20 years. Itís already used for high value produce.

    I think you are absolutely right Ozy although I personally donít see them providing the same scale of disruption, mainly due to the fact that the economics are not as strong thus they may remain more niche than mainstream for quite some time yet.

    They will however certainly come into the mix and you can easily see the large supermarkets or whatever building one right next to their main distribution centres for example.

    Iíve also seen some articles on experimental micro farms that are actually located in the supermarket themselves!
