Tara Garnett Comments on World’s First Lab-Grown Burger

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 13:00

Dr Tara Garnett (Food Climate Research Network) commented on the news that the world's first lab-grown burger, grown from cow stem cells, was eaten, live on the Internet, yesterday.

She said decision-makers needed to look beyond technological solutions. "We have a situation where 1.4 billion people in the world are overweight and obese, and at the same time one billion people worldwide go to bed hungry," she said. "That's just weird and unacceptable. The solutions don't just lie with producing more food but changing the systems of supply and access and affordability, so not just more food but better food gets to the people who need it."
