Future Meat Technologies, one of the Israeli developers of cultured meats, hired a CEO with a background in animal meat companies OSI Group and Cargill. Nicole Johnson-Hoffman replaces Rom Kshuk as the company begins producing cultured meat for public consumption.

Johnson-Hoffman brings more than 25 years of experience across the agriculture, food manufacturing, foodservice and meat production industries. She was based in Munich, Germany, as Managing Director, Further Processed Foods for OSI Europe, and also served as Senior Vice President leading the company’s global operations for the fast-food giant McDonald’s.

Prior to OSI, Johnson-Hoffman spent 19 years at Cargill, where was in-house counsel and served in various leadership roles from financial services to beef plant operations in the U.S. and Asia. Future Meat opened what it claims is the world's first cultivated meat production line in Israel earlier this year and is now scouting several locations in the U.S. for a planned large-scale production facility.
