ACS NY: Progress on our Plates: Legal & Regulatory Issues in Alternative Proteins

Please join the ACS New York, Bay Area, Virginia, Austin, and At Large Lawyer Chapters for a virtual conversation with Madeline Cohen of the Good Food Institute for a discussion of legal, regulatory, and policy issues affecting alternatives to traditional meat products.

The future of food has come into clearer view in recent years, thanks to advances in alternative proteins. From “meatless meat” (such as high-quality plant-based meat products) to cultivated meat products (like slaughter-free cellular-based meat), innovations in alternative proteins are poised to revolutionize how we eat, with transformative implications for animal welfare, the climate, public health, and beyond. But this transformation faces critical legal and regulatory roadblocks that could slow down its progress.
