What does your startup do and what is your mission?
Cultimate Foods is a cellular-agriculture company working on a B2B ingredient based on cultured fat. The product is designed to make plant-based meat alternatives taste like the real thing, thus helping to reduce the global consumption of animals.
The ingredient brings the authentic taste, texture, tenderness, and mouthfeel of conventional meat to meat alternatives. Moreover, it is a substitute for unsustainable plant oils. In the long term, Cultimate Foods also intends supplying cultured-meat producers with its cultured-fat product.
Where did the idea for your company come from?
The company was founded by professionals from both the plant-based and cultured-meat sectors. After several years of working in the alternative-protein sector, we were all thinking about the future of alternative meat. We believe that the future of meat is hybrid products – a combination of plant proteins and cultured ingredients.
