HumanResources. If it's made from icky vermin because normal livestock are no longer abundant, that's ReducedToRatburgers on a commercial scale.

Added DiffLines:

* No less a man than UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill predicted the idea of artificially produced meat. In 1931 he suggested, "We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium."

* "Fanfic/AenrhienVailiuri": Sahuel complains that, as oversweetened as she thinks Morgan's tea recipe is, it beats what comes out of the replicator because "replicated just tastes fake."

* Sly (SylvesterStallone) eats a hamburger made from a rat in ''Film/DemolitionMan'' while in the Wasteland. Curiously, he seems to dig it, though he seemed a bit surprised/disgusted for a brief moment. Probably because it's the best food '''period''' he's had in years. Being in suspended animation for a few decades tends to do that for you, especially with the revelation that he was conscious the entire time. He may also have been playing it up to freak out the surface-dwellers that were with him; they were horrified by the notion of eating meat, and he seems to enjoy making fun of their delicate sensibilities.

* In ''Series/{{Lexx}}'', the eponymous spaceship/dragonfly dispenses food for his/her crew as a green, orange or blue slime through an organic-looking tube. It's stated several times during the show that the food consists of processed "organic material" Lexx him/herself ate before. Considering Lexx often consumes parts of inhabited planets or passing starships, this leads to slightly disconcerting implications.

There's a RunningGag of Stan ordering exotic delicacies from Lexx and expressing mock disappointment at getting the same slime every time.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Joker implies that most commercially available beef is vat-grown. The Quarians render all their food, plant or animal, into paste before eating it. However, for the most part, it seems that natural food isn't particularly rare.

** Another short story, "Good Taste," focuses on the orbiting colony Gammer, where fungus/yeast based cuisine is SeriousBusiness and all recipes are based on standard extracts. The protagonist enters(and ''wins'') the annual cooking contest, and the chief judge raves about his entry until he admits that the key ingredient was a ground bulb of naturally-grown garlic. The judge immediately vomits at the idea of having eaten "growths from the ground" and the protagonist is banished.
