Head of Public Affairs, Mosa Meat; Maastricht, The Netherlands
Robert Jones ‘20 is head of public affairs for Mosa Meat, the Dutch food technology startup that pioneered the first cell-cultured beef in the world. His role at the company, which just closed a Series B of $85M, is to safeguard the political environment in which regulatory decisions are made that impact Mosa’s products. As part of that work, he helped launch Cellular Agriculture Europe, the continent’s first trade association for cell-culturing companies. Based in Brussels, it represents 13 startups across Europe and Israel that will seek Novel Foods approval for cell-cultured animal products. Previously Robert acquired 22 years of experience in government affairs, advocacy, and communications, including holding positions such as director at the environmental defense fund and as an appointee by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, a master’s degree from George Washington University, and is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. (Maastricht, The Netherlands)
