The animal agriculture business is a billion-dollar industry, but with populations spiraling out of control, natural resources under increasing pressure and large-scale agricultural operations pumping a disturbing amount of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere, the whole world seem...s to be sleepwalking into a food crisis. This is the story of a group of seven vegans quietly working to solve one the most pressing issues we face today, creating the biggest upheaval to the food business in decades along the way. In The End of Meat, Chase Purdy explores the companies at the cutting edge of the nascent food technology sector. He tells the inside account of Hampton Creek - the first and only food startup ever to hit unicorn status - and its lightning rod CEO Josh Tetrick as they race to create a viable synthetic meat product, bring it to market ahead of the competition and upend the monolith of animal agriculture. From the lobbyist working behind the scenes to fix regulations in advance to allow for distribution of lab-created products, to the fundraisers working with some of the biggest investment banks and wealthiest individuals in the world, The End of Meat will take readers on a truly global journey from Silicon Valley to China, by way of Israel and the UK.
