Memphis Meats Raises $161 Million In Funding

Memphis Meat Wants to Bring Cell-Based Products To Consumers

Memphis Meats, one of the leading cell-based meat, poultry and seafood companies, has just announced the close of a $161 million funding round. This breakthrough round marks the largest funding moment in the history of the cell-based meat industry, and will likely enable Memphis Meats to reach the historic milestone of bringing its products to consumers. In total, the company has raised more than $180 million. There’s no question about it: The sustainable food industry is on fire right now.

The Series B round is led by SoftBank Group, Norwest and Temasek. Also joining the round are new and existing investors including Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Threshold Ventures, Cargill, Tyson Foods, Kimbal Musk, Fifty Years and CPT Capital. This round extends the Memphis Meats coalition to Asia, which is a strategically valuable market for cell-based meat and faces significant challenges in meeting growing demand for meat.
