The Company Leading the Future of Farming Modern Meadow aims to combine 3-D printing and tissue engineering to meet the world's demand for beef and leather.
Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
Here's a crazy idea: Combine 3-D printing and tissue engineering to "print" animal products and tackle some of the planet's biggest problems. Animal farming, after all, accounts for about half of all human-caused greenhouse gases, taking place on one-third of the available, non-frozen land on Earth. All to feed people's appetites for 300 million tons of meat a year.
Enter Gabor and Andras Forgacs, father-and-son founders of Modern Meadow, a company they started in 2011 that may very well be the model for the farm of the future.
