Operation Easy Burger

 

A smuggler is detained at Heathrow airport carrying a bank account number and a human wisdom tooth. The investigation leads to a fast-food restaurant that produces in vitro meat in a factory on-site. A raid of the premises reveals that the factory is not operating properly, instead the staff are using the equipment to produce another, more valuable product...

 

We currently view synthetic meat as something repulsive and alien, yet the potential environmental benefits it provides will undoubtedly drive the need and acceptance of this technology. 'Operation Easy Burger' proposes a possible consequence of the industrialisation of in vitro meat production, presented as a piece of detective fiction.
