Meat of synthesis, vegetables without earth, the "food tech" promises us mountains and wonders. It will impoverish our food and enrich the multinationals.

The United States has just opened a regulatory framework for the production of in vitro laboratory meat. There is no doubt that in the coming decade, a breaker will water the world market with this type of product, as was the case for soda colas more than 40 years ago, which, note it, the public authorities still accept that we do not know the completeness of the compositions: "secret formulas" oblige!

Multiple agri-food players will quickly adopt this "meat" synthesis in fast food (burgers, dumplings …). If the food of tomorrow will of course be less meaty for many reasons, including ecological, is it necessary to be prepared to accept a highly artificial diet: steaks in vitro, strawberries growing in containers all year round, liquid concentrates or artificially flavored, enriched with synthetic vitamins supposed to provide all the nutrients in place of a meal … In short, what should be called "food tech", presented as environmentally friendly because without use of pesticides, concentrated in vitamins and minerals, low in cholesterol … The ideal?

Rather, it is a form of nonsense on the way for which huge investments are being made. This "food tech" is not environmentally friendly, because it will be extremely energy-intensive (need artificial light, synthetic nutrient media …), unlike anything that grows in the fields and animal breeding that enjoy free sun rays and rich soil.
