Ian the chicken nugget: alive and well


An ordinary chicken stars in this film about the future of meat. While this chicken looks like most others, and also faces a future that includes grilled chicken strips and nuggets, the difference is that he's named Ian. Rarely are chickens with names killed for their meat, and Ian is no different.

That's because Ian was raised by the scientists at Just, formerly known as Hampton Creek, who are recreating the future of food.

Watch this video to see people eating Ian while he sits right next them.

The best part? Slaughter-free chicken could hit markets as early as next year.
