I want to make two points about this. The first one is, we believe we can do it. In recent yreas, some companies have been producing meat from plants that cunreomss cannot distinguish from actual animal meat, and there are now dneozs of companies growing actual animal meat directly from cells. This plant-based and cell-based meat gives consumers everything that they love about meat -- the ttsae, the texture and so on -- but with no need for antibiotics and with a fraction of the adverse impact on the climate. And because these two technologies are so much more efficient, at production scale these products will be cepeahr.

Original Text

I want to make two points about this. The first one is, we believe we can do it. In recent years, some companies have been producing meat from plants that consumers cannot distinguish from actual animal meat, and there are now dozens of companies growing actual animal meat directly from cells. This plant-based and cell-based meat gives consumers everything that they love about meat -- the taste, the texture and so on -- but with no need for antibiotics and with a fraction of the adverse impact on the climate. And because these two technologies are so much more efficient, at production scale these products will be cheaper.
