Sales of plant-based meat and dairy products are soaring, and startups around the world are building real meat, egg and dairy protein from cells instead of live animals. UBS, JP Morgan and others project alternative protein will be a $140 billion industry by the end of the decade, with top food companies and investors already on board and a dozen successful exits.
