3D food-printing developed in Cambridge

Producing food by printing it, rather than growing it, could be one way to solve the global food problem, some experts believe.

The Cambridge-based company Dovetail is developing 3D food printing that produces "creative" food from a variety of pre-packaged liquids or raw ingredients.

The printer - costing about the same as a "high-end food mixer", according to the company - can print food, on demand, at the touch of a smartphone.
