our mission

A SHARED MISSION

We’re proud to have the support of world-class investors, food industry leaders, and visionaries alike, including SoftBank Group, Temasek, Norwest, and Threshold Ventures, Tyson Foods, Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Kimbal Musk, and Whole Foods.

ANIMAL
WELFARE

A little technology goes a long way. The cells from a single chicken allow us to cultivate the same amount of poultry that ordinarily would come from hundreds of thousands of traditionally farmed birds.

ENVIRONMENT

At scale, we project cultivated meat will use 77% less water and 62% less land than conventional meat. And we expect these numbers to get better over time. We currently use 100% renewable energy at our production facility.

HUMANITY

Our meat is cultivated in a clean, contamination-free facility. By reducing the number of animals raised and processed, we decrease the susceptibility to animal-borne diseases.
