Over the centuries, the application of grassland and cutting of livestock are the primary foundations for
the production of food agriculture manufacturing. Growing human population, accelerated human
activities globally, staggering food inequity, changing climate, precise nutrition for extended life
expectancy, and more demand for protein food call for a new outlook to smartness in food agriculture
manufacturing for delivering nutritious food. Cellular agriculture, 3D printing of food, vertical urban
farming, and digital agriculture alongside traditional means are envisioned to transform food agriculture
and manufacturing systems for acceptability, availability, accessibility, affordability, and resiliency for meeting demands of food in this century for communities across the US and the world. This technical note illustrates the thought leadership for cellular agriculture as a part of the new food agriculture manufacturing revolution.
