Mycelium steak from Meati

Chipotle invests in Meati – Quick-service Mexican food chain Chipotle recently invested in Meati, a producer of alternative chicken and steak made from mycelium (the root-like structure of mushrooms). This investment is a part of Chipotle’s new venture fund called Cultivate Next, which aims to invest in companies looking to “cultivate a better world” and progress Chipotle’s growth. Chipotle has always provided plant-based options, and shredded mycelium beef or chicken as a menu item would be the ultimate level up for those of us that order animal-free burritos and bowls.
