Steak is one of the most-loved meaty magic that many people love. But it’s very hard to replicate the juiciness and the texture of steak. With plant-based meat products, you get grounded or minced fake meat which can be developed into sausages (example, Quorn). These products cannot be made into the muscle-based texture of a steak. Emergy, on the other hand, is trying to get that texture in their meat products.

Emergy was founded by two Ph.D. students coming from the University of Colorado – Tyler Higgins, an environmental engineer, and Justin Whiteley who is a mechanical engineer focusing on materials science. They have written dozens of articles about the environment and how small things impact it. They have also talked about renewable lithium batteries, water- filtration systems based on charcoal, and the bioremediation of fungi in polluted areas. But when they saw that the US population is slowly growing satisfied with meat alternatives with a 10% rise in people consuming such products from 2018, they were excited. They go $4.8 billion dollars in venture capital and started this revolutionary company.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That amount of funding in venture capital, translating into a viable product, is certainly a win for Higgins and Whitely; I hope they really hit big with this, because I am constantly looking for ways of getting more vegetable protein for Mike and me.
