Leonardo DiCaprio invests in Mosa Meat


Environmental activist and Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio has joined Mosa Meat as an investor and advisor.

“One of the most impactful ways to combat the climate crisis is to fundamentally reshape our global food system. Mosa Meat pioneered a cleaner, kinder way of making real beef with the world’s first cultivated beef burger in 2013,” shared Leonardo DiCaprio today. “I’m honored to join them as advisor and investor as they now prepare to bring cultivated beef to market for all those who crave change.’’

While global meat consumption is projected to rise between 40-70% by 2050, cultivated beef offers a solution to mitigate the impacts of industrial beef production. A recent independent Life Cycle Analysis study shows that cultivated beef production is projected to reduce climate impact by 92%, air pollution by 93%, use 95% less land and 78% less water than industrial beef production. Additionally, cultivated meat will enable diners to enjoy the qualities of the meat they love, eliminating the need for any major behavioral change. 

“Leonardo DiCaprio’s work to bring about positive change for the planet is closely aligned with our mission at Mosa Meat,” shared our CEO, Maarten Bosch. “We are thrilled to bring him on board as advisor and investor and work together to feed current and future generations sustainably.”
