Cell-Cultured Congressional Briefing brings food, technology, and innovation to Capitol Hill
On Tuesday 25 April, experts in the alternative protein space will came together in the the USA's capital to discuss the state of the cell-cultured/cultivated industry and what this means for the future of food in a briefing for Members of Congress and their staff. The event, sponsored by cell-cultured tuna company Finless Foods, was the first time since the pandemic that cell-cultured/cultivated industry experts will convene on Capitol Hill to discuss important policies and programs that can ensure the United States continues to be a world leader in building a safe, secure, and sustainable food system.
The panel of experts will included Jessica Almy, Vice President of Policy at The Good Food Institute, Andrew Noyes, Vice President of Global Communications and Public Affairs at GOOD Meat, Shannon Cosentino-Roush, Chief Strategy Officer for Finless Foods, and Alex Smith, Senior Food and Agriculture Analyst with the Breakthrough Institute. Megan Poinski, a senior reporter with Industry Dive, will moderate this hour-long conversation, which will touch upon current barriers in the industry, international efforts in this space, and steps the United States can take to support growth in this field.
"The cell-cultured food industry has grown exponentially from inception to first US regulatory approvals," said Shannon Cosentino-Roush, Chief Strategy Officer at Finless, "I'm honored by the opportunity to bring together such an outstanding group of experts to update Congress on the status and needs of the industry to grow in the USA."
