Regulating the Future of Food Conference 🌱

23-24 November, Barcelona, Spain

Who said regulatory affairs has to be dull? 🐌

Set amongst the antique fermentation tanks at the Old Estrella Damm brewery in ☀️ sunny Barcelona, we bring you leading experts in food safety, novel food regulations and policy, fizzing🍺 with knowledge and passion about the regulation of novel foods and alternative proteins ...... there will be nothing dull about this event!

During this exclusive 2-day conference we will discuss the challenges of getting innovative and sustainable food products to market, identify what we need for science-based risk assessments to demonstrate food safety, and to provide guidance and insights to help delegates with their regulatory journey.

With amazing expert speakers, panel discussions and deep-dive workshops, this first-of-its-kind conference aims to:

  • Discuss the key challenges we face as an industry.

  • Identify what we need for science-based risk assessment for different types of alternative proteins and products derived from food-tech.

  • Propose changes to current regulatory frameworks to enable more optimal routes to market without compromising on safety.

  • Work with each other to openly discuss what is missing and what the industry needs.

  • Define concrete action points and recommendations that can be used as drivers for change.
