Lab Grown Meat Companies to Invest In

L

Lab grown meat seems to be the future of meat.

While companies like Beyond Meat, which make plant-based faux meat have a head start, they don’t seem like they’ll take over the meat industry like lab grown meat could.

In terms of timeline, lab grown pet treats should be coming out in 2020/2021, and then cultured meat for people will likely launch shortly after.

Currently, there are no public lab grown companies to invest in. When that changes, I will update this page.

That probably won’t be an option for at least a few years. If you have a substantial amount to invest, you can try to contact the companies below to try to invest privately, but it’s not a realistic option for most.

Lab Grown Meat Companies to Keep an Eye On

Again, to be very clear, none of these companies are public.

However, these companies are at the forefront of the emerging lab grown meat industry, and most have taken private investments already. 

There’s a good chance that some of them will go public in the future, although that’s probably years down the line.

Mosa Meat

Mosa Meat is the only lab grown meat company with an investment page on their website. Click the link just above to visit that page.

Mosa Meat is best known for unveiling the first lab-grown burger back in 2013 (cost $250,000 at the time).

Since then, they’ve made a lot of progress and continue to be one of the most promising companies in this field. They raised $8.8 million in 2018 with plans of launching lab grown beef products in 2021.

Memphis Meats

Memphis Meats has an impressive list of private investors, which includes Bill Gates and Richard Branson.

One of their investors is also Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN). I suppose you could invest in Tyson Foods, but this is a very small part of what they have their hands in.

Future Meat Technologies

There’s not a lot of information on their website, but Future Meat Technologies was able to raise $14 million in Series A funding.

Meatable

Meatable is a Dutch startup that was only founded in 2018.

Again, there’s not much information on their website. However, it was able to raise $3.5 million in funding, so it could potentially compete with the other companies on this list.

Finless Foods

Finally, while all the companies above focus mostly on lab grown beef and chicken, Finless Foods is a Brooklyn-based startup focusing on lab grown fish.

The company has raised money (undisclosed amount) from the VC fund SOSV and IndieBio.
