About Brian and New Age Meats:
Brian Spears, the Founder and CEO of New Age Meats. What's fascinating about New Age Meats is that they are combining plant-based ingredients with cultured animal meat. This way, Brian says, you get the best of both worlds: the sensory experience and irreplaceable flavour of meat that’s safer and more sustainable than conventionally-grown meat.
"Taste and the experience of eating the meat are extremely important. And the identity of eating the meat is extremely important. But it really doesn't matter if it's too expensive and low scale."
Brian envisions a world in which everyone has access to delicious food that is also sustainable for the planet. He’s a “guilty-meat eater” - and is selfishly solving his own problem, and that of many others, with this venture.Brian is a chemical engineer with 12 years of industry experience in laboratory and industrial automation.
Previously, he spent eight years as a Co-Founder of Sixclear, creating software and hardware products with customers such as NASA, Cisco Systems and Sandia National Labs. His background with these diverse and broad-reaching customers highlighted to him the opportunity and potential to have an impact at scale and for good.
