Future food: health and sustainability

London, UK


This conference held by the Royal Society will bring together leading experts from industry, government and the wider scientific community to discuss the future of food sources and the human diet in decades to come.

The conference will focus on two broad themes: the sustainability and health benefits of plant-based foods, and the application of synthetic biology in food production. The UK’s current standing in terms of food research, technical challenges, changing consumer preferences and public perception, safety and ethical issues, and the regulation of genome edited products will also be explored.
