Expert Biography

Acacia focuses on securing public funding for plant-based and cultivated (grown from cells) meat research and development.

Her background is in European environmental policy, international development in the European Commission, and with New Zealand’s Mission to the EU.

Acacia works for the Good Food Institute Europe, an international NGO helping to build a more sustainable, secure and just food system by transforming meat production.

We work with scientists, businesses and policymakers to advance plant-based and cultivated meat, eggs, dairy and seafood – making them delicious, affordable and accessible across Europe.

By making meat from plants and cultivating it from cells, we can reduce the environmental impact of our food system, decrease the risk of zoonotic disease, and feed more people with fewer resources.
