Interest in meat alternatives has largely stemmed from an increasing awareness of the incredibly high footprint of animal agriculture, leading both consumers and companies to actively seek solutions.

Mosa Meats, the company that produced the first cultured burger back in 2013 (early investors include Google’s Sergey Brin), just raised 7.5 million euros to continue its pursuit of mass-producing this sustainable form of meat by the year 2021. While that dollar amount isn’t groundbreaking, it’s the investors that participated in the recent round that has people in this industry frothing with excitement.

Mosa’s investment round was co-led by M Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of science and technology company Merck, and Bell Food Group, the leading meat processor in Switzerland with operations across Europe.
