Purpose: The purpose of this internship will be to support the work of GFI’s Policy Department to promote a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply through regulatory and legislative reform. Specifically, the legal intern will support GFI’s policy initiatives to level the playing field for plant-based meat and ensure a clear and efficient regulatory pathway for clean meat.
