How is Modern Meadow funded?
The company is supported by a combination of private investors and research grants. We appreciate the combination of insight and support our investors bring to the company to help drive our long term success.
When do you expect cultured leather and meat to be available?
Although we are developing both products, we expect leather to be commercialized sooner than meat. Our near-term focus is to perfect prototypes of our leather material which can be demonstrated in small scale fashion applications. Following successful demonstrations, we will seek to scale production to make our material available in larger formats.
While we have demonstrated a tasting at the TEDMED conference in 2011, cultured meat will take more time as it must overcome greater technical, regulatory and market hurdles. We are working diligently towards preparing a tasting for our delicious, healthy and ethical meat products. – less–ZoomInfo
