Meat or its substitute, a dilemma that has been gripping the planet for quite some time now. Are meat substitutes the answer to the climate crisis caused by meat consumption? Will the meat-alternative market be able to satiate the demands of the growing population? These are some of the questions that “The Great Meat Debate” seeks to answer.
The documentary delves into the world of meat substitutes and the rapidly growing market for these alternatives. Through a critical exploration of the meat substitute industry, the documentary provides insights into the approaches taken by traditional meat producers, high-tech start-ups, and scientists who aim to create real meat in the laboratory. The film also looks at the challenges faced by these players in producing authentic alternatives that mimic the meat taste.
