Aleph Farms

Aleph Farms

Aleph Farms is an Israeli cellular agriculture start-up founded by Didier Toubia and Shulamit Levenberg in 2017 developing technologies for culturing meat products into 3D structures.

Aleph Farms (previously Meat-the-Future) was co-founded in 2017 by Israeli food-tech incubator The Kitchen, a part of the Strauss Group Ltd., and the Technion, a public research university.

Aleph Farms goal is to create products which have the same texture and shape as meat from conventional animal farming — such as steak. The company is pioneering technologies that allow cultured meat products to move beyond simple structures using one or two types of cells, such as ground beef, to more conventional meat cuts. Their technologies allow for several cell types to be grown into complex shapes; which has traditionally been a limiting factor for cultured meat companies.

Products

Their approach is to create a 3 dimensional scaffolding within their bioreactors which is seeded with multiple cell types including muscle fibers, connective tissue, blood vessels, and fat. These cells grow together into the structure of steak directly onto the scaffold with the bioreactor, rather than being manually combined afterwards.

Funding
Seed

In 2017 Aleph Farms became a member of the Strauss Group food-tech incubator called The Kitchen. After Aleph Farms began having success in the Strauss Group incubator program, Strauss Group invested an undisclosed amount of seed funding into Aleph Farms.
