The Animal Advocate Who Wants You To Eat More Meat
There is an opportunity for abundance in our food system where every person and every animal is a winner. Can meat grown from cells without harm to animals cause creative abundance over destruction - for animals, the environment, and people? Brett Thompson is the Co-Founder and CEO of Mzansi Meat Co., Africa’s first cultivated meat company, the co-creator of Discourse ZA, and the co-founder of Credence Institute. Brett studied finance and economics at the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University; has worked in alternative protein and animal advocacy for more than a decade in both South Africa and Germany; and is constantly interested in the way we eat and how we can use innovation to drive better food systems.
With all of his research and work to back him, Brett brought to the TEDxCapeTown stage the idea of food in abundance - where both humans and animals will benefit. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community
