Israeli Savor Eat Launches Personalized Plant-Based 3D Printed Hamburger

Hellsria, Israel — Israeli food technology company Savor Eat launched on Tuesday a personalized plant-based hamburger system, one of the first companies to cook food using 3D printing technology.

Veggie burgers from companies such as Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat are usually frozen and later grilled.

However, SavorEat’s technology is made in the field by a self-contained 3D printer with three cartridges containing oil and other ingredients. Customers can choose the amount of fat and protein they need for each hamburger. This takes about 6 minutes to cook.

Racheli Vizman, CEO of Savor Eat, told Reuters:

She said the company’s burgers are made from a combination of potato, chickpea and pea proteins.

Demand for meat substitutes by health and environmentally conscious consumers has skyrocketed in recent years, but alternative protein start-ups have raised more than $ 3 billion in 2020.

Another Israeli company, Redefine Meat, began rolling out meatless whole cuts in European restaurants last month.

SavorEat, which is primarily funded by Israeli institutions, said its Tel Aviv-listed stake rose 11% on Tuesday and its products will initially be offered in local hamburger chains.

The company is also working with Yarzin Sela, a food service company that supplies Israeli tech companies, and has a contract with Sodexo to provide vegan burgers to US universities.

“A growing segment of people are called” flexiterians. ” People are actively looking for meat alternatives to reduce meat consumption, “said Vizman, citing about one-third of the US population.

Oded Shoseyov, Chairman and Chief Scientist of Savor Eat, said the company is also working on plant-based pork breakfast sausages for the US market.
