, /PRNewswire/ — On Tuesday, April 25, experts in the alternative protein space will come together in the nation’s capital to discuss the state of the cell-cultured/cultivated industry and what this means for the future of food in a briefing for Members of Congress and their staff. The event, sponsored by cell-cultured tuna company Finless Foods, will be the first time since the pandemic that cell-cultured/cultivated industry experts will convene on Capitol Hill to discuss important policies and programs that can ensure the United States continues to be a world leader in building a safe, secure, and sustainable food system.
