Are we ready to start consuming meals from the lab instead of the paddock? With scientists working towards producing finless fish and chickenless eggs, this dilemma could soon be a reality.
 

This is just one of the many topics that will be discussed with a number of world class experts at evokeAG., to be held in Melbourne in February 2019.
