Will Most Food In The Future Be Lab-Grown?

Think Tank Foresees Major Disruption In Food, AG In Next Decade, Institute of Food Technologists, 18 September 2019

[A report by the independent think tank, RethinkX] predicts that by 2030, the dairy and cattle industries will have collapsed as animal-derived foods are replaced by modern equivalents that are higher quality and cost less than half as much to produce. The rest of the livestock industry will suffer a similar fate.

One of these modern technologies is called precision fermentation:

Precision fermentation (PF) is a process that enables the programming of micro-organisms to produce almost any complex organic molecule.

I can’t imagine that the dairy and cattle industries will be decimated in a mere 10 years. But I do think there will be a lot of lab-grown food in the future. I’ll also predict that food grown organically, in soil, outside, will become even more exclusive.
