KANSAS CITY, MO. – Cultured or cell-based meat continues to make progress toward entering the marketplace. With the rise of this meat alternative, the infrastructure that’s needed to bring the product to more people in the United States and around the world is also developing.
That’s where Matrix Meats comes in. The Columbus, Ohio-based company, operated by co-founder and chief executive officer Eric Jenkusky, develops nanofiber scaffolding for growing cell-cultured meat items.
Jenkusky describes his background in the military and in the defense contracting field and how Matrix Meats became part of his portfolio.
He also discusses the application for his product and what he expects to see in the growing meat alternative space.
Jenkusky then shares some of his thoughts on regulations on cultured meats and where the product will be in the next few years.
