MMilk lovers will soon be able to drink cow’s milk and hold the cow, thanks to a startup that is successfully producing the drink with just the animal’s cells.

“Having struggled with dairy, being a vegetarian throughout my life, with added concerns about milk when we got pregnant and had our first baby, I’m thrilled to embark on this mission to re-create dairy with Brown Foods,” CEO Sohail Gupta wrote. in a LinkedIn post.

Animal rights activists have expressed outrage over rising prices for alternatives to traditional milk. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals recently staged a nearly 90-day sit-in at a Starbucks in Seattle to protest the company’s markup on vegan milk options. . Alternative milks accounted for 15.2% of all milk sold at retail in 2020.
