Meat 3.0 — How Cultured Meat is Making its Way to the Market journal article

Karin Verzijden, Jasmin Buijs

European Food and Feed Law Review, Volume 15 (2020), Issue 2, Page 96 - 107

Developments in the field of cultured meat go fast. At the end of 2019 and at the beginning of 2020, several companies on both sides of the Atlantic announced new funding rounds. Furthermore, an alternative for the controversial fetal bovine serum (FBS), a by-product made from the blood of cow fetuses, was reported to be within reach. In the Dutch Parliament, it was discussed if and how the development of cultured meat should be supported. All of these developments result in market access for cultured meat becoming more and more a reality. This article therefore aims to further clarify such market access in regulatory terms and to respond, where appropriate, to an article on this topic previously published in EFFL. Market access requirements include that the applicant makes a proposal for the name of the product. In this article, we shall therefore discuss the key question if cultured meat can actually be called ‘meat’. This article will also provide a comparison of the regulatory requirements between the EU and the US, as far as currently known. Finally, it will discuss the new EFSA transparency requirements as of 2021, which are expected to be of high impact for cultured meat companies.


Online Food Regulation in China journal article

The Role of Online Platforms as a Critical Issue

Juanjuan Sun, Jasmin Buijs

European Food and Feed Law Review, Volume 13 (2018), Issue 6, Page 503 - 513

“Internet plus” has contributed to radical changes of food supplies and consumption patterns in China. This called for a need to fill the legislative-regulatory vacuum of online food business while promoting digital economic development. While the rise of large-scale platforms constitutes a challenge for such regulation, those platforms also bring about regulatory innovation by taking advantage of self-regulation and co-regulation.This paper analyses the role of online platforms and aims to provide an insight into the development of online food regulation in China, which may subsequently contribute to the establishment of common principles for online food regulation, in particular, and internet regulation, in general. Keywords: internet regulation; platform; online food; food safety; China.
