Yep. It's the future. Welcome.

The year is 2023. Why are we raising whole cows just to make burgers?

Our purpose is to make meat the world can depend on.

We love meat. But we really don't like what industrial animal agriculture is doing to our world. From the environmental havoc that the beef industry causes, to the cruelty factory farming entails, frankly it's becoming hard to enjoy a burger anymore.

This is why SCiFi Foods exists. We believe that there is and always will be a huge demand for meat. It is already one of the largest markets in the world (over 1T dollars!), and it's continuing to grow. We also believe that science and technology, which have solved so many pressing needs for mankind in the last century, can and will also solve the way we produce meat—to make this process cleaner, kinder, and drastically more efficient, as the planet pushes past 8B people and the threat of global warming increases year after year.

Making cultivated meat—real meat, grown from cells instead of in an animal—is no longer just a pipedream. It's here and it's happening now. We plan to be the first to bring the world cultivated beef, starting with a burger that blends cultivated beef with a proprietary recipe of plant-based ingredients.

We're a team of burger-obsessed food lovers, working tirelessly to make sure that soon we'll all be able to enjoy our burgers without destroying the planet.

SCiFi Foods is led by Cofounder & CEO Joshua March and Cofounder & CTO Dr. Kasia Gora.
