Meati Foods is one of those plant-based startups that will revolutionize the global meat industry. Meati’s whole-cut meats, made of 95% mushroom roots, contain more protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals than traditional animal meat. The vegan startup has been selling out online since February with its whole-cut alternate meat and Mycelium alternate chicken.
Now Meati is ready to drive an offline presence with the massive $150 million investment from its latest Series C funding. The Colorado-based company will use the new funding to complete its Mega Ranch facility and expand its U. S. production and retail footprint. Meati CEO, Tyler Huggins, wants the vegan brand to reach 10,000 U.S. households by 2023. They’re hiring!
