About Meatable

We are on a mission to make 100% real, delicious meat, without the negative impact on our climate and the need to raise and slaughter animals.

The Meatable approach for creating ‘cell-based’ meat is based on ground-breaking proprietary technology that was developed at The University of Cambridge and allows us to turn induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into muscle and fat cells, creating 100% real, delicious, guilt free meat. With our technology, scalable cell-based meat production is becoming a reality.

We are a young and fast-growing company and are entering our next wave of growth. Given our size, new team members will be a huge part of our motivated multidisciplinary team.
