EIT FAN Haifa Hub highlights and success stories
Redefine Meat is leading a technological revolution in the food industry by creating craveable animal-free meat using proprietary industrial 3D printers. Founded in 2018, Redefine Meat has developed the world's first patent-pending 3D meat printing solution technology that replicates the texture, flavour, and eating experience of beef and other high-value meat products. The company uses plant-based ingredients and technology as opposed to animals, allowing for a dramatically more efficient, sustainable and moral way to produce meat without compromising on the experience. Redefine Meat's alt-meat is 95% more sustainable, significantly healthier and costs less than beef.
FreezeM is developing a novel technology for revivable insect freezing in order to improve the use of insects as a protein source in the animal feed industry. FreezeM creates the only viable way to generate a steady output of larvae to insect protein factories worldwide - a solution corresponding to agriculture seed production. FreezeM aims to revolutionise the insect farming supply chain and to become the leading manufacturer of eggs to this emerging industry.
FreezeM was founded in 2018 as a spin-off company from the Weizmann Institute of Science. It raised a seed investment of $500K and won several prizes and awards from the EU. Since its participation in the EIT program at the Technion (Haifa), FreezeM received a research grant from the Israel Innovation Authority, expanded its team and fly facility at Kibbutz Nachshonim, and created several promising collaborations and partnerships with leading stakeholders in the insect farming industry.
