The future of meat
starts here. There is no need to kill animals in order to produce real meat.

Look!

Meat is not innocent!

Meat production is unfair, unhealty and unfriendly to environment. Today, for each kilogram of meat production:

15500
liters of water is required
1000
m2 of land is needed
200
kilogram of CO2 is released
150
mg of antibiotics are used

We are biftek.co

We start with muscle stem cells and utilize our novel plant based medium formulation, free of fetal-bovine-serum. We aim to decrease the cost of clean meat production 60 folds compared to FBS based methods. We introduce much better way to cultivate meat.

Healthy

The end product is real meat produced without any genetic modifications or antibiotics. Meat is disease free and as healthy as it should be.

Environment friendly

There will be minimal need to water and land. %18 of the overall green house gas emission could be minimized if all the meat production becomes clean.

Ethical

"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian." - Sir Paul McCartney. In the future we will look back and say how cruel we were abusing animals. With clean meat technology there would be no need for animals and slaughterhouses.

Affordable

Price of each kilogram of meat will decrease as the production methodology is excelled. Therefore clean meat revolution can solve the growing food demand for all.

Why?

How?
