Global demand for meat is expected to increase in the coming years.

“I have tried it and it is very good. If I had to add a flavor to it, I would say it is slightly umami“says Peter Rowe, CEO of Biotech firm Deep Branch.

Rowe takes his job very seriously, and he’s not talking about human food. What he has eaten are samples of an artificial protein created especially to feed animals.

Umami is known as the fifth type of taste that humans perceive in addition to sweet, salty, sour and bitter.

Rowe’s team works to reduce the contaminating footprint of pet food, which is so frequently distributed in shipments around the world.
