Using a combination of artificial intelligence, biochemistry and plants, this Chilean company creates vegan burgers and meat. NotCo (or The Not Company) believes in using tech for good by using an AI model to address the issue of global food security. Their non-human food scientist Giuseppe is programmed to enhance nutrition and be environmentally conscious, so it understands the limited availability of resources while also taking taste preferences into account.

The result is plant-based vegan burgers as well as other meats, eggs and dairy products like cheese and milk. NotCo replicates the taste and texture of hamburgers and hot dogs, but in a way that's sustainable at the molecular level. Their sustainable protein products provide a solution to animal agriculture and climate change.
