Good to know

Less than 20% of Redefine Meat employees are vegan or vegetarian – the rest are all meat-eaters. Aside from its Rehovot based manufacturing plant, the company operates an additional one in the Netherlands where it produces 500 tones of plant-based meat per year. Redefine Meat is the first company to have launched a vegan “cut” of meat simultaneously on two different continents: in Israel, the Netherlands, the UK, and Germany.

The company has recently launched a product line for home use.
