Would you eat a 3D printed burger?

Welcome to the future of food: ‘clean’, ‘cultured’ meat grown in laboratories and printed by 3D printers. To dramatically reduce harm to the environment, animals and your health, it may be time to try a steak – that tastes, looks and smells like meat – produced in a test tube. And with 3D printers being sold in supermarkets, it’s not long before the world of 3D-printed food shifts from the lab to our own kitchens. Let’s deep-dive into the research that’s driving a more sustainable and revolutionary food chain with these two emerging technologies in action.

This event is part of From the Ground Up: An Exploration of Food, Hospitality and Technology in Melbourne – a day of programming dedicated to understanding the role Melbourne plays in the wider conversation around food and innovation.
