Regulating the future of food

Alternative proteins imitate meat and dairy but are often made using new technologies. This project combines an innovative mix of empirical and legal analysis to understand the full range of expectations, opportunities and risks regarding alternative proteins and their regulation. It uses this new knowledge to determine how to regulate for healthy, sustainable and prosperous future food systems.

Expected outcomes include a new approach to regulating food and the creation of new pathways for stakeholder engagement in regulation for better food futures.
