Just Eat CEO Invests in Cultured Cow Cell Burgers
Nutreco, a supplier of animal nutrition and aquafeed, and Jitse Groen, CEO of Just Eat Takeaway.com, have invested in Mosa Meat, a European food tech company cultivating cow cells to produce real meat.
The investment brings the total raised to $85m, and the recent partnership is envisaged to bring a wealth of knowledge to Mosa Meat's plans in scaling-up real beef production.
Mosa Meat will use the funds to extend its current pilot production facility at its home in Maastricht, develop an industrial-sized production line, expand its team, and introduce delicious cultivated beef to consumers.
Nutreco CEO Rob Koremans says:
"I am delighted that Mosa Meat has reached its next milestone toward large-scale production of real meat. Nutreco is invested in its mission of Feeding the Future, which will require protein production from traditional and alternative protein production methods. Our partnership in Mosa Meat is an important part of our strategy to help to meet the growing demand for high-quality protein."
