What's needed from the public, private, and investment sectors to support a competitive UK market? How can policy support the nascent alternative protein industry to meet growing consumer demand? What are the specific requirements to enable scale-up and growth? Are there legislative barriers for industry to invest in new production/manufacturing facilities? How are multinational companies and major retailers supporting R&D investment? How does the industry ensure products are readily available and compete on price, quality, and taste?
