Meat-free By 2047? Richard Branson Thinks So!


Virgin founder and billionaire Richard Branson believes that the world will awaken and eat ‘clean’ meat and plant-based after an investment group he's a part of (along with the likes of Bill Gates) invested $17 million dollars in food tech company  Memphis Meats.


In a recent interview, Branson talked about the decision saying "I'm thrilled to have invested in Memphis Meats. I believe that in 30 years or so we will no longer need to kill any animals and that all meat will either be clean or plant-based, taste the same, and also be much healthier for everyone.”

Memphis Meats won’t debut its products until 2021, with lab tests still being done on animal cells.

A meat-free world would excite billions of people, so we’ll have to keep a keen eye on the progress Memphis Meats makes over the years.
