How is this innovative?

We've been "3D printing" meat for thousands of years. They're called sausages and hot dogs! How is this micro extrusion "printing"? How is this bologna purée "ink"? Who's falling for this marketing crap?
I'm 100% for lab-grown meat. But 100% against this particular blind alley...

Can we process our food any further?

Oh my gosh! Shouldn't we be eating real unprocessed foods instead of playing with foods and processing them further? Where is good health in all this madness? Why not use time honoured methods of using the entire beast if eating meat instead of processing further? Jet ink meat put through printer sounds disgusting.

gross!!!

so the poor aged and infirm are going to get the meat usually reserved for petfood?
value added..ir huge profit for former scraps by a fairly cheap machine?
offal and water etc preservatives much?
kidney liver brains heart dont taste like muscle meats either so what else is going to be added?
"flavours" like macwhatsits psuedoburgers get?
normal cuts of meat cooked slow n properly would be far more acceptable and affordable for the aged!
and wtf once again Aus is falling for overseas hype when we have no shortage of decent real food beats me.
