Doug Vining Re-inventing the dairy industry: no cows required

About a year ago, we wrote a MindBullet about how tech would change the food industry, as lab grown meat and plant products would take over from animal farming. Here's a startup that wants to produce alternative milk proteins for the dairy industry, without any cows.
A FuturesForum post (titled: "Re-inventing the dairy industry: no cows required") refers to this MindBullet. The full FuturesForum post can be read here: http://www.futureworld.org/PublicZone/FuturesForum/BlogDetails.aspx?PostID=af9136e3-9dc5-48f2-b347-4a7961fef821

Doug Vining Beyond meat, beyond belief

In a sensational stock exchange debut, new listing Beyond Meat surged 160% on the first day's trading. But is this whole idea sustainable? Company revenues are up, but so are losses. Investors obviously have a lot of faith in a vegan powered future. As we said in our MindBullet, nerds will eventually make cows obsolete; well, at least for steak and hamburgers. But I wonder if this isn't another tech bubble, that will take some time to find its feet. Am I too cynical, or is this just too early to get euphoric about?
