Shiok Meats is a cultivated meat and seafood company – the first of its kind in Singapore and South-East Asia.
“Shiok” in Singapore and Malay slang means fantastic, delicious, and simply, pleasure.
Shiok Meats also owns SEA’s first cultivated red meat company, Gaia Foods.
Our mission is to bring delicious, sustainable, and healthy seafood to your table, using our technology to grow meat from healthy cells instead of animals. Currently, we produce crustaceans like shrimps, crabs, lobsters and are the first in the world to do so using cellular agriculture technology.
Our meats are real meat, delicious and nutritious. Our meats are animal-, health- and environment-friendly.
Same great taste, better for the planet!
We are currently in the R&D phase and target to commercialise in 2023.
