It's not entirely subsidies, though those are quite a problem, it's also that these are still relatively low volume items with an uncertain market size. As vegan options become more widely used and more widely known to be delicious the costs will adjust themselves.

Exactly, it's a matter of efficiency and scale. idk much about vegan stuff, but from what I know about lab grown, it will come down in price as technology improves and scale increases. We'll get there, it just takes time.

Overly confident corporations that barely get a wrist slap nowadays for price gouging/inducing inflation may feel differently about that.

And then farmers will complain that their market share is shrinking and they need more subsidies to keep prices low.
