At the forefront of farming and food, UPSIDE Foods is innovating new ways to produce real meat, without the need to breed, feed and slaughter animals. Our process begins with an animal cell, which is cultivated and harvested as meat. The founding company of the industry, UPSIDE Foods is a mission-driven organization focused on bringing to meat lovers an authentic product that is truly humane, sustainably produced, nutritious and delicious! We are now expanding our team of dedicated professionals across disciplines to make better meat for a better world.
About this internship
The Food Product Development Intern will assist the Product Development Scientists in developing benchtop prototypes.

Working in our new test kitchen, this position requires daily work at the bench, formulating and then evaluating product prototypes. This is an exciting opportunity to create delicious food with cultivated meat.
