...AND CHEAPER...:

You will be eating replacement meats within 20 years. Here's why (Carsten Gerhardt, 7/20/19, WEF)

The conversion of grain (when used as livestock feed) in dry weight to meat with similar amounts of calories is around 15% across all meat types, as most of this energy is lost in keeping animals' body temperature constant, creating by-products and excreting waste. If by-products are considered as edible meat, the conversion rate rises to 23%. Meanwhile, novel vegan and cultured meat need significantly less material input and water to create the same amount of meat. Their conversion rates are 75% and 70% respectively.

The curve is nowhere near inverted enough.
