Exploring Our Food System with Josh Tetrick

View descriptionShare

This week, I speak to Josh Tetrick on his revolutionary food tech that is currently in the process of taking the world by storm.

Josh Tetrick is CEO & co-founder of Eat Just, Inc., a food technology company with a  mission to build a healthier, safer and more sustainable food system in our lifetimes. The company's expertise, from functionalizing  plant proteins to culturing animal cells, is powered by a world-class  team of scientists and chefs spanning more than a dozen research disciplines. Eat Just created one of America’s fastest-growing egg  brands, which is made entirely of plants, and the world’s  first-to-market meat made from animal cells instead of slaughtered livestock.

Prior to founding Eat Just, Tetrick led a United Nations  business initiative in Kenya and worked for both former President Clinton and Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. As  Fulbright Scholar, Tetrick taught schoolchildren in Nigeria and  South Africa and is a graduate of Cornell University and the University  of Michigan Law School. 

Tetrick has been named one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business” and recognized on prestigious lists such as the TIME100 Climate, Inc.’s “35 Under 35” and  Fortune’s “40 Under 40.” Eat Just has been recognized as one of Fast  Company’s “Most Innovative Companies,” Entrepreneur’s “100 Brilliant  Companies,” CNBC’s “Disruptor 50” and a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, and GOOD Meat has been named one  TIME’s Best Inventions of 2023.
