Why

The current food system is causing devastating damage to our planet. And Mosa Meat believes that a new, sustainable approach to growing food is one of the best ways to turn the tide. Based in Maastricht, this diverse team of scientists, engineers, food-lovers and problem-solvers are all united in one common mission: to fundamentally reshape the global food system.


Profile

Mosa Meat is a European food technology company pioneering a cleaner, kinder way of feeding the world. They do it by harnessing the same natural processes responsible for muscle growth in a cow to produce the same beef that people love, but that’s kinder to animals, better for the environment, and safer to eat. With a sesame-seed sized sample of fresh beef, Mosa Meat can produce 80,000 hamburgers – while the cow lives happily ever after. Having created the world’s first cultivated meat in 2013, they are now setting the dining table of the future. Pull up a chair.
