CULT Food Science Appoints Mitchell Scott of The Better Butchers as New CEO

CULT Food Science Corp., a leader in cellular agriculture technology and product development, appoints Mitchell Scott as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1, 2023. This development follows the resignation of the company’s former CEO, Lejjy Gafour.

Mitchell Scott is no stranger to the plant-based and cultivated food sectors, with over eight years of industry experience including the co-founding of Canadian plant-based meat brand The Very Good Butchers.

Scott was exited from The Very Good Butchers prior to its collapse in 2022 when the company went into receivership, and earlier this year announced his newest endeavor, The Better Butchers. The Canadian startup, specializing in cultivated meat production, is currently working on prototypes for pork sausages, meatballs, and marinated steaks, with plans to introduce these cell-based products to the Canadian market by the end of the first quarter of 2024.

He stated, “Our mission is clear: to revolutionize the world of food through innovation, sustainability, and flavor.
