Investments in the alternative protein industry are at an all-time high in many regions around the world. Global law firm Keller and Heckman LLP provides advice on the procedures and the necessary scientific inputs to overcome regulatory hurdles and get these innovative ways of producing food proteins approved. 

This webinar is part of a series of regionally focused webinars on the specific regulatory framework in place on alternative proteins (i.e., insects, plant-based alternatives, cell-based “cultivated” meat(s), and micro-organisms fermentation techniques, including “precision” fermentation). 

We will review the main regulatory, scientific, and technical considerations to have in mind when it comes to getting alternative protein products approved in the European Union. We will also provide an update on the evolving regulatory framework in the United Kingdom. 

During the webinar, you will receive the latest insights on: 

  • Regulatory framework of alternative proteins in the EU (food additive, GMO, or food/novel food?)
  • Focus on Novel Foods: authorization and scientific requirements
  • Specific examples: edible insects, cultured meat, fermentation-derived proteins, and plant-based proteins
  • UK update
