Sweeney named one of most powerful women in food

Dawn Sweeney, the National Restaurant Association’s president and chief executive, is one of the 11 most influential women in food, according to the Daily Meal.

Sweeney was ranked No. 8 on the online publication’s annual list of top female influencers in food. The publication also named her one of the most powerful people in food.

She was cited for her work in leading the Association’s political advocacy work on such issues as health care and immigration reform, for her focus on improving restaurants’ child nutrition and sustainability practices through its Kids LiveWell and Conserve programs, and highlighting the importance of food safety.

The Daily Meal used five criteria in developing its list, including the person’s reach, their venues for reaching people, past accomplishments, potential for future accomplishments, and proven ability to reach and influence people.
