Believer’s groundbreaking process and technology have paved the way to bring cultivated meat one step closer to commercial viability, pending U.S. regulatory approval. The new brand was developed by the company in partnership with branding and design agency Red Antler. The rebranding follows a series of significant milestone announcements made by the company within the last year, including its significant Series B round of financing, appointment of Johnson-Hoffman as CEO, creation of a global leadership team, and breakthrough in cultivating lamb, among others. The company will scale production of its cultivated meat products at its new commercial-scale production facility, which is expected to break ground in the United States before 2023.
