Welcome to Episode 202 of Building My Legacy.

If, like many people, you’re concerned about how we can continue to feed earth’s inhabitants without further sacrificing our forests, you’ll want to hear from Paul Shapiro. Author and CEO of The Better Meat Co., Paul explains how his company is creating real meat from animal cells so we can continue to enjoy meat without slaughtering cattle or devoting more and more land to them. Creating meat from animal cells sounds like an idea from the future, but it’s happening right now as Paul’s company collaborates with companies like Perdue Farms and Hormel Foods to create the protein of the future. It’s a fascinating story and an important step in the legacy we leave for future generations.

So if you want to know:

  • What’s involved in creating real meat from animal cells and the environmental advantages of this process
  • How the future of protein will be far more diverse than it is today
  • Brands to look for in the grocery store to explore this new approach to meat
  • How start-ups can collaborate successfully with large, established companies
