Laboratory-created animal product alternatives, such as “clean” meat and genetically engineered meat and dairy replacement products, are increasingly garnering attention in the media and among investors. These products, while bold in their goals to reduce factory farming, have not yet been fully assessed for their impacts on human health or the environment as outlined in the recent “From Lab to Fork” report released by Friends of the Earth.
On August 16th, please join us for a 90-minute webinar and discussion about this emerging wave of products rapidly entering the market. The webinar will offer a moderated discussion with policy and science experts who can explain how these “food-tech” products are produced; highlight regulatory gaps in oversight and their implications; and explore how these products fit in our current understanding of sustainable and healthy foods.
