Our Story

We love meat. But like most people, we don’t love the negative side effects of conventional meat production: environmental destruction, animal welfare concerns and a slew of health risks. With consumers spending over $750 billion per year on meat, and demand for meat expected to double in the coming decades, one thing is clear: we need a better way to feed a hungry world.

That’s why we started Memphis Meats. Our goal is simple: to change the way meat gets to your plate. We're developing a way to produce real meat from animal cells, without the need to feed, breed and slaughter actual animals. We expect our products to be better for the environment (requiring up to 90% fewer greenhouse gas emissions, land and water than conventionally-produced meat), the animals and public health. And most importantly, they're delicious.

With our home-base in the San Francisco Bay Area, we're combining the innovative spirit of Silicon Valley and the rich food traditions of the American south to provide a better meat and world.
