World’s First-Ever Book Bound in Real Leather Grown Without Animal Slaughter
But while most of these companies are focused on replacing animal agriculture in terms of food, a new development in the world of clean meat has just occurred, and it’s not edible.
In a news release, The Good Food Institute writes:
“For the first time in history, a book has been bound in real leather that was grown without a cow. A Washington Post bestseller, Clean Meat: How Growing Meat without Animals Will Revolutionize Dinner and the World, is the first book to chronicle the new field of cellular agriculture: growing real animal products like meat and leather outside of animals.”
The company that created this animal-free leather is biotech start-up Geltor (formerly Gelzen Inc.), which “grew the leather via microbial fermentation to offer a hint of a near-future in which our dependence on animals for food and fiber is replaced by better sources.”
Geltor CEO Alexander Lorestani states:
“If you think products like gelatin, leather, and meat have to come from a once-living animal, this book’s cover – and the book itself – will show you that we now have a better way.”
