SuperMeat, the Israeli biotech and food-tech startup, has announced today it has raised $3M in seed funding and has formed a strategic partnership with PHW, one of Europe’s largest poultry producers, and an equity investor in the company.

The recent seed round was led by US-based venture capital fund New Crop Capital and mission-oriented VC firm Stray Dog Capital.

One challenge in food production of the future is the fast growing demand for meat products that are very resource consuming in their production process. Currently available meat replacement products often have drawbacks with regard to the desired mouth feel and texture. Here, 3D printing offers new opportunities to develop innovative texturizing procedures to overcome the limitations of conventional processes. The BMBF funded project CIBUS food (Computational-design and Innovative Building of Uniquely Structured Food) aims at solving the issue by imitating the structure of real food using 3D printing of sustainable material like plant proteins.
