Memphis Meats

Memphis Meats creates real, edible meat products from stem cells instead of living animals.

At Memphis Meats, our mission is to bring delicious and healthy meat to your table by harvesting it from cells instead of animals. You can enjoy the meat you love today and feel good about how it's made because we strive to make it better for you...and for the world.

FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP
Cells are building blocks of all food we consume and at Memphis Meats they are the foundation of our approach. We make food by sourcing high-quality cells from animals and cultivating them into meat think of a farm at a tiny scale. We cut some steps from the current process (like raising and processing animals) and bring nutritious, tasty meat to your table.

BETTER FOR YOU
By producing meat from the cell level up, we can ensure the highest level of quality at every stage. We aim to keep the benefits of conventional meat while making our products healthier, more nutritious and safer. We want you to enjoy the best of both worlds. It is like having your steak and eating it, too.

BETTER FOR THE WORLD
We're making meat that is better for animals and that at scale uses significantly less land, water, energy and food inputs. Our process will produce less waste and dramatically fewer greenhouse gas emissions. We believe that the planet will be the ultimate beneficiary of our product.

We're looking for passionate professionals hungry for pivotal challenges and excited to join a team of hands-on dreamers.
