Hello New Harvest,

Do developments in cellular agriculture take ethics into account?

In this week’s episode of New Food Order, I join Food+Tech Connect’s Danielle Gould and AgFunder’s Louisa-Burword Taylor to discuss this and more alongside:
  • Varun Deshpande, managing director of The Good Food Institute India
  • Didier Toubia, CEO of Aleph Farms, and
  • Errol Schweizer**, former VP of Grocery for Whole Foods and overall food industry leader

Together, we discuss:

  • 🧬 How to define biotech and precision fermented foods
  • 🧫 What questions we should be asking about cultivated meats and fermentation-based foods
  • 📣 How you communicate with transparency the complexities of bio-foods to eaters
  • 🔬 The need for open access scientific research in bio-foods development
  • 📈 Operating models for these technologies and foods in the global south
  • © The ethics of IP and corporate control of research and these technologies
  • 💲 Who is investing in biotech foods - from governments to investors to multinationals
Listen Now: What is the Role of Biotech in an Ethical Food System?

Let me know what you think!

Have a great week,

Isha Datar

**You may recall that Errol wrote an intriguing article, What Questions Should We Be Asking About Cell-Based Meats? to which our Research Fellow Andrew Stout responded on our blog, to which Errol responded on his podcast! Talk about discourse!
