Original essays on the promise of cultivated meat—the bioengineering of animal flesh from cultivated animal cells.

In 2013, Mark Post, a pharmacologist and professor of vascular physiology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, introduced to the world’s press a meat patty made from animal cells. Since that time, the possibility that we may within a decade be able to cultivate animal cells at scale to create meat without killing an animal or utilizing animal parts has drawn the attention of life scientists, investors, and companies—all of whom are working to produce pork, beef, fish, shrimp, and other meat products without the waste, cruelty, greenhouse gases, or land-use change of conventional animal agriculture. Cultivated Meat to Secure Our Future is the first volume to highlight the voices of some of the entrepreneurs, scientists, and market research specialists from around the world who are leading the charge to revolutionize what and how we consume meat and dairy in the coming decades. This book is produced in collaboration with GAIA, or Global Action in the Interest of Animals, which unites defenders of animal welfare and advocates for human rights in Belgium.

Hermes Sanctorum is the head of the consultancy firm Hugin & Munin, and since 2019 has worked for GAIA (Global Action in the Interest of Animals) on the transition toward cell-based meat and animal-free experimentation. From 2009 to 2019 he was a member of the Flemish parliament and a Belgian senator, where his major battlefields were animal welfare and rights, in particular the case of slaughter without stunning. Hermes Sanctorum studied bioengineering and obtained a PhD in environmental chemistry in 2009. He was alderman in his hometown Overijse from 2001 until 2006. He is the author of Eigen soort eerst (First Our Own Species) and a lecturer.
