Eat Just (formerly known as Hampton Creek) was founded in 2011 by Josh Balk and Josh Tetrick. In June 2021, Forbes reported that "Eat Just is targeting 'at least' $3 billion in valuation for its IPO that will likely happen in Q4 2021 or early next year," according to an investor. These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
Eat Just is a food company that specializes in developing plant-based alternatives to egg products. The company also works to develop lab-grown meats. In 2020, Eat Just's lab-grown chicken received regulatory approval in Singapore and was subsequently served at a restaurant as the "world's first commercial sale of cell-cultured meat." The company has received over $600 million in funding, most recently in a $200 million round led by the Qatar Investment Authority.
