The joint call will support the advancement of plant-based foods and ingredients, helping meet the growing global demand for diverse protein options.

The call builds on previous cooperation between the countries, including a June 2023 meeting between Canadian Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne, and UK Science Minister George Freeman.
