Cultured Meat Symposium - October 22-23 :
The Cultured Meat Symposium is coming up in October and will be hybrid in-person and online event. Hard to imagine, but we will actually get to see each other. I’ve had over 20 episodes of this podcast and never actually met anyone in this industy in person. Not one. Here’s our chance.
My guest today is Sandya Sriram, co-founder and CEO of Shiok Meats based out of Singapore. They are one of the first seafood companies in the industry, focused on bringing crustaceans to market.
Prior to Shiok Meats, Sandhya co-founded two ventures - Biotech in Asia, a Singapore-based Biotech and Healthcare Information Hub in 2014, and SciGlo, an EdTech event management company in 2016. After graduating with a Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, Sandhya pursued her postdoctoral at A*STAR, also in Singapore.
In this episode, we cover their full story, starting from their founding up to their recent big news of acquiring another cultivated meat startup, Gaia Foods.
