Bill Gates Blesses Meat Innovation

By Janay Laing

On a recent appearance on CNBC, Bill Gates, the almighty voice for futuristic tech and innovation,  officially decreed his support for reinventing meat using plants and technology, as a means to stop both climate change and the abuse of farmed animals. His support for these products and the companies making them isn't exactly news - Gates was an early supporter of high-quality plant meats in 2009, when he invested in startup Beyond Meat and enthusiastically endorsed their chicken products. 

But as meat innovation continues its rise to the mainstream, it's always nice to hear a solid endorsement from one of the mightiest and most influential voices of our time.
