Redefine Meat announces ‘New-Meat’ range of products, expanding its alternative meat offerings
Kebab? Burger? Bolognese? There’s a product for that
Israeli foodtech company Redefine Meat has today announced a menu of new 3D-printed items that are now available to order at select Israeli restaurants and hotels across the country. Among the items available to order - and eat - are a restaurant-style burger, an artisan sausage, a ‘meaty’ puff pastry local for the Middle East, ground beef, and a lamb kebab that has just been revealed following two years in stealth mode.

“Launching our first product portfolio represents a big step in our mission to become the world’s largest meat company, and accelerates our ability to bring to market our further innovation later this year,” said Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, CEO and Co-Founder of Redefine Meat. “Each product in the range and the ones to follow are born from our understanding of meat at the molecular level, extensive R&D and technological innovation, which combined provide us the ability to create any meat product that exists today. This has been critical to achieving a superiority in taste that honestly, we did not even expect, and the technological versatility to do what no other has done – replace every part of the cow with tasty plant-based meat.”
