Our Vision

Alleviate one of the biggest bottlenecks in advancing cultivated meat to mass production
We believe in sustainability and aspire to be good and spread good to our community, to humanity and to planet earth, by using our green technology to take one of the world’s most infamous plants - the tobacco - and use it to supply food, reduce cruelty to animals and make a positive environmental impact.
