New Age Meats, a biotechnology company growing meat from animal cells, announced $2M in seed extension funding, bringing their total seed round to $4.7M. New Age Meats crafts meat to be tastier, safer, and more sustainable than meat made any other way.

Why does this matter?

  • New Age Meats, like Impossible Foods and others in the space, is making meat for meat eaters — their mission is to build a more sustainable supply of protein for the planet.

What’s next?

  • New Age Meats uses automation to optimize bioreactors and grow its meat faster, and funds will go towards implementing more of this automation, as well as robotics, to speed up both the research and development processes.
