When we think about the future of food from an animal rights perspective, we imagine veganism. But a vegan food system isn't the only one compatible with animal rights. Could we have our cake and eat it too? A rights-respecting non-vegan food system could contain meat and other 'animal' products made using plants, or via cellular agriculture. It could continue to contain non-sentient (and thus non-rights-bearing) animals, as well as rights-bearing animals afforded genuine protections. This possibility gives us a new image of the politics and landscape of animal rights.
