Today’s biologists, scientists and chemists are framing the future of food in ways that most of us haven’t imagined. That’s all about to change, thanks to food labs.
The United Nations projects that the world’s population of 7.6 billion as of 2017 will reach 9.8 billion by 2050, and 11.2 billion by 2100. So, what’s the big deal about a couple billion more people every few decades?

Socially conscious, scientifically savvy business owners (that includes farmers) and investors have realized a need to take up the slack in our food supply. Wrought by increasing temperatures, droughts, floods, rising sea levels, soil depletion, resistant pests and an increasing number of mouths to feed, our food supply is more fragile than most of us realize. Some are accidental #agribusiness experts, but they continue to learn by doing and their company’s corporate identity is now one of innovation and internally, they’re more efficient than ever.
Plus, clean labs address the one unmentionable in agriculture: Meat grown the old-school way is much more prone to contamination. In food labs, those chances are close to nil.
For farmers, having peace of mind in one facet of their business is priceless. As we cruise the aisles of our well-stocked supermarkets, replete with all manner of produce year-round, we’re apt to become indignant if they’re out of, say, avocados.
However, many agencies, and agriculturists are aware that a temporary shortage of the popular pitted fruit is like the tip of the melting iceberg when it comes to issues affecting food security.
That’s one reason so many scientists are heading to food labs.
“Imagine all the food mankind has produced over the past 8,000 years. Now consider that we need to produce
that same amount again — but in just the next 40 years if we are to feed our growing and hungry world.” –
Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever, and Daniel Servitje, CEO of Grupo Bimbo
A farmer needs land; food scientists, cellular biologists and researchers need labs. Labs are big investments, and need to be highly specialized to meet the rapidly evolving needs of food analysis and testing, clean technology, and cellular agriculture.
One emerging field is clean (lab-grown) meat. Eating high on the food chain, (i.e. eating meat), has created concerns regarding supply, as well
as major environmental concerns like water consumption and greenhouse gases.
Meat cultured in a lab could become a viable, sustainable and ethical alternative.
