From MBA to Meati: Bringing Fungi Protein to Market (Career & Leadership Series)

This month's event will feature:

Georgia Loftis holds an M.B.A. from Georgetown University McDonough School of Business, where she focused on go-to-market strategy for the plant-based and clean meat (PCBM) industry and graduated in the spring of 2020. While at Georgetown, she worked on several projects for clients including Impossible Foods and the Good Food Institute. Prior to graduate school, she earned a B.A. in International Studies from Rhodes College (Memphis, TN) and went on to serve in the U.S. Peace Corps in Indonesia from 2015-2016, where she became interested in food systems. Georgia is currently the Executive Operations Manager at Meati Foods. Founded in 2017, Meati Foods is working to change the way we eat by democratizing access to delicious, nutrient-rich, complete protein in a way that protects and preserves our planet’s water, land, and air. Eat Meati™ is the debut product line from Meati Foods featuring whole-food cutlets and steaks made from mushroom root, created with modernized yet ancient and natural processes in a toxicity-free environment. Currently, Eat Meati™ is produced in the Boulder-based “Pilot Ranch,” and Meati recently commissioned its new Thornton, Colo.-based “Mega Ranch,” which can produce tens of millions of lbs. annually. Eat Meati™ made its retail debut in July 2022 after multiple months of record sellouts on its direct-to-doorstep online shop, with plans for a national omni-channel footprint by late-2023. Meati’s textures and flavors have won the enthusiastic support of some of food’s most impactful leaders, chefs and icons.
