Food Matters Live – the global community changing the future of food and drink

Posted 9 April, 2021

Join food, nutrition and ingredients experts at Food Matters Live on 29-30 June online.  

This year we are delighted to invite you to visit Dr Hannah Lester’s presentation on “Regulatory considerations for alternative proteins as novel foods: How to avoid pitfalls and get to market quicker”. 

The alternative protein market has seen a considerable rise since environmentally friendly eating habits have taken center stage. Concerns about personal health, climate change and animal cruelty have been pivotal in the growth of the industry.

According to FORBES, the alternative protein market grew to just under $5 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow exponentially to $85 billion within the next decade.

If you are interested in bringing alternative proteins to market, you really need to consider your regulatory strategy as early as possible to avoid hitting regulatory roadblocks & delaying time to market. In this talk, Hannah will cover:

  • What is the regulatory framework for alternative proteins?
  • What are the quickest routes to market?
  • Which studies have to be performed?
  • How long will a registration take & how much will it cost?
  • What are the major regulatory hurdles & issues facing alternative proteins?

Join us to a celebrate the latest innovations from across the food, drink and nutrition sectors. Food Matters Live is the only food, drink, nutraceutical industry event attracting large numbers of UK-based, as well as international, brands and manufacturers looking for new and innovative solutions.

We look forward to meeting this year’s participants with their innovative products!
