Job Details

Industrial animal agriculture is at the root of many of the most pressing global issues of our time, from climate change and global hunger, to antibiotic resistance and poor animal welfare.

The Good Food Institute Europe (GFI Europe) is at the forefront of the movement to use food technology to replace the products of industrial animal agriculture with plant-based and cultivated alternatives. Please check out our website and read GFI’s 2020 Year in Review to find out more about who we are and what we do.

We are at an exciting stage in our growth, and are looking for a Policy Manager to join our team. For more information about this role, please read the Policy Manager job brochure (https://bit.ly/3tikffD).

How you will make a difference
Your role will have high responsibility and high impact. You will significantly influence how quickly Europe and the world move to a more ethical and sustainable food system.

You will be responsible for driving our regulatory policy work in Brussels and beyond. The focus of this role is ensuring that sustainable protein products can safely come to market in Europe. You will work to deliver a clear, transparent and evidence-based regulatory path-to-market for plant-based, fermentation-made and cultivated proteins in the EU, and potentially in other European countries, including the UK. This role will not focus on the scientific, technical or legal aspects of regulatory approval and risk assessment, but on ensuring that there is sufficient political support for the approval of sustainable proteins.
