One of the companies taking advantage of this food revolution is Memphis Meats. And according to TechCrunch, this company is now hoping to transform your Thanksgiving dinner by replacing its most prized possession – the turkey – for a more synthetic alternative.
“Memphis Meats sizzled onto the startup stage earlier this year with a lab-grown meatball. Now, it’s entertaining the idea of growing other meats — including turkey. The startup has created an Indiegogo campaign to save some of the nearly 50 million birds from the slaughter each Thanksgiving by educating the public on what meat of the future could look and taste like.”

As of writing this, they’ve already acquired $54,210 of their $100,000 funding goal. If you want to finally pardon all turkeys of the future, join the movement and help make a difference.
