About Us

REVOLUTIONISE. MTE is an Israeli food-tech company developing protein ingredients that revolutionise the food industry, by enhancing and perfectly mimicking the texture of meat.

 

LEAD. The company was founded in 2020 by the highest ranking technologists in Israel’s food industry. Joined by world-class data scientists, protein engineers, and mechanical engineers, MTE focuses on extrusion processes, introducing industry-oriented solutions into food mass production. 

 

GROW. Consumers aren’t satisfied with today’s widespread options for meat alternatives. They crave something closer to meat in terms of texture.  In blind taste tests, products based on MTE’s technology and ingredients beat market leaders. MTE is a solution for businesses looking to increase consumer satisfaction and grow in organic retail sales by offering meaty texture indistinguishable from the real thing.
