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

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.


The Role of Razzies in EU Food Law journal article

European Food and Feed Law Review, Volume 8 (2013), Issue 6, Page 396 - 400

One day before the distribution of the Academy Awards for excellence of cinematic achievements, the ceremony of Golden Raspberries or “Razzies” takes place. Razzies are awarded in recognition of the worst in film. Obviously, no producer, actor or actress is looking forward to receiving this “prize”. However, the Razzy ceremony has continued to take place since 1980, so there seems to be no escape.
