This episode of the CFO Playbook features an interview with Kevin Benmoussa, EVP & CFO at Aleph Farms, a company growing beef steaks from non-genetically engineered and non-immortalized cells isolated from a living cow. This is done without slaughtering the animal and with a significantly reduced impact on the environment.
Before Aleph, Kevin held numerous leadership positions at some of the biggest brands in the world. His previous roles include CFO at The Vita Coco Company, where he was responsible for expanding the company’s global finance functions before leading that company’s IPO in 2021, and positions at Nestlé and PepsiCo where he took the lead on mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, and business development.
In this episode, Kevin talks about transitioning from corporate settings to a pre-revenue startup, the importance of profitability and forecasting in growing companies, and the booming expansion of the cultivated meat industry in recent years.
