Conference paper presentation at panel Food02: Arguing with and about food from the table to policy

Short Abstract: Meat analogues have an established history in the Sinosphere due to vegetarian Buddhist practices. This paper discusses how this perception is being transformed by emerging advocacy networks advancing new plant-based meat substitutes as modern, animal-friendly, and climate-conscious alternatives.
