Shiok Meats is a cell-based clean meat company, exclusively working on seafood. Shiok Meats is the first cell-based meat company in Singapore and SE Asia and we employ cellular agriculture to grow seafood meat in the laboratory using cells instead of animals. Shiok in Singapore English slang means fantastic and enjoyable. Our meats are animal-, health- and environment-friendly with the same taste, texture and nutrients, but no cruelty. Our mission is to bring delicious and healthy meat by harvesting from cells instead of animals.
