Event description

In late 2022, the cultivated meat industry hit an important milestone – UPSIDE Foods became the first cultivated meat company to successfully complete the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)’s pre-market consultation. The FDA has also shared in a recent update that it is currently in pre-market consultation discussions with other cultivated meat companies. 

As we come closer to full regulatory approval, join GFI experts to review the current status of the cultivated meat industry and to take a deep dive into the recent advancements that have taken place in the United States. In this webinar we will cover: 

  • Overview of the cultivated meat production process 
  • The US regulatory pathway 
  • Consumer messaging and nomenclature 
  • Audience Q&A with GFI scientific, regulatory, and market experts 

Meet the speakers

Our speakers today include experts from GFI’s corporate engagement, science and technology, and policy teams. We will be joined by: 

  • Faraz Harsini, Senior Scientist, Bioprocessing 
  • Laura Braden, Lead Regulatory Counsel 
  • Madeline Cohen, Regulatory Attorney 
  • Emma Ignaszewski, Associate Director, Industry Intelligence & Initiatives
