Parallel Session One
New patterns of production and consumption
It is crucial for Government and regulators to understand how new patterns of production and consumption impact on both producers and consumers. This session looks at the impact of supply chains on the global food system, while examining the demand side by focusing on consumer views on the future of food. The sessions will cover developments in supply chain technology and the views of generation Z (16- 24-year olds), as well as consumer views of emerging technologies such as cloning, lab grown meat and nanotechnology.
Room: Wordsworth
Emerging Risks
New production technologies and a rapidly changing food landscape pose challenges for food s regulators as they need to be aware of potential risks and understand how they can mitigate for them. This session will provide insights into some of the regulatory challenges of new developments in the agri-food sector such as novel packaging materials. It will also provide ground for discussion of how analysis can be deployed to better understand risks and to inform decision-making.
Room: Churchill
Novel foods
The session will host a series of presentations on very topical areas in the novel food space, such as lab-grown meat and dietary supplements; exploring their opportunities and examining some of the wider issues and challenges in embracing these technologies.
Room: Wesley
The Role of International Regulatory Cooperation (IRC)
There is a clear case for encouraging greater international regulatory cooperation (IRC). Regulation without consideration for the international context in policymaking could potentially result in unintended impacts of regulatory divergences. This session will look at best practice and case studies in understanding the role of IRC from a regulator’s perspective.
