You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. - Bill Gates

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has suggested that every single wealthy country should move to 100 percent synthetic beef from real beef as soon as possible. The famous billionaire also stated that the 80 poorest countries of the world would continue eating actual cows for a while.

Zoom Out: Gates emphasized that the carbon emissions related to livestock is one of the hardest problems to solve in the fight against climate change. Then, he added that the wealthy nations should be more careful about what they eat.

Zoom In: In 2017, Gates himself had invested in a lab-grown meat company called Memphis Meats, which manufactures meat at a cellular level. Stating that he wasn't sure whether that will ever be economical, he praised some of the plant-based competitors like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat for their roadmap.
