Cargill is investing in animal and alternative protein to meet increasing demand. To date, its investments in cultured protein include 2017 and 2020 investments in Memphis Meats, a US-based company in cultured protein products. In 2019 it also invested in Aleph Farms, an Israel-based cell-cultured protein company focused on growing complex meat varieties like steak. “Our strategy is to invest in all forms of protein,” said Brian Sikes who leads Cargill’s global protein businesses.
