Leaders in Research

New Harvest is a nonprofit research institute that supports open, public cultured meat research. Founded in 2004, we are the world’s longest-running organization dedicated to advancing the field of cellular agriculture.


Our mission is to maximize the positive impact of cellular agriculture.

In late 2020, we changed our mission from “build the field of cellular agriculture” to “maximize the positive impact of cellular agriculture on the world.” Read why here.



The ends do not justify the means. Our responsibility as a funder, thought leader, and public voice is to always use our power for good.

Informed Optimism

It is important to communicate the promise and progress of cellular agriculture to the world—and to differentiate between the two. Data and evidence must guide us towards realizing our vision.

Inclusive Expertise

Our work cannot change the world unless we uplift new voices and welcome diverse perspectives to shape the field.

Giving Community

Our work is greater than the sum of its parts thanks to a global giving community which generously contributes funding, expertise, services, and goods to collaboratively realize the change we seek to see in the world.

We pursue a relationship-oriented rather than transactional approach to fundraising and partnership to allow us to remain nimble and independent as we move forward in our work.
