What We're Building

We're developing technology to grow meat directly from animal cells. Our unique insights will allow us to bring down costs, making it feasible to feed the growing world population. Our vision is to make premium quality, delicious meat products that are better than what’s possible with an animal.

Our first step: premium meat snacks. Right now, meat snacks sacrifice quality for convenience. In order to prevent bacterial contamination, producers have to blast meat snacks with preservatives, and suck out all of the moisture. No longer with cellular agriculture - our bacteria-free process will allow our meat snacks to be better quality than what’s even possible with an animal. We’ll create restaurant-quality meat that you can take anywhere.
