Shiok Meats is the world’s first cultivated crustacean meat company, and Southeast Asia’s first cultivated seafood company. We also own Southeast Asia’s first cultivated red meat company, Gaia Foods.
Shiok Meats was founded in August 2018 by Dr. Sandhya Sriram and Dr. Ka Yi LING. They have over 20 years of combined experience in muscle, fat, and stem cell biology fields. Dr. Sandhya is also a former business development professional, a serial entrepreneur, and a thought leader.
They wanted to leave a legacy by helping humans, animals and the planet. They knew that current seafood practices are unsustainable and will not be able to effectively feed a growing global population.
Motivated by their love for both food and innovative science, they used their years of knowledge to create sustainable, delicious and healthy meats that will help futureproof our planet.
