NRA sponsors Food System Summit

More than 150 stakeholders in the U.S. food system gathered in Chicago this week for a Center for Food Integrity Food System Summit cosponsored by the National Restaurant Association.

Restaurant industry leaders joined representatives from agricultural producers, farm bureaus, commodity groups and other organizations Oct. 25 to 26 to discuss issues ranging from food safety to nutrition, animal well-being, technology innovation and the challenges of feeding a growing world population.

Dr. Robert Post, director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, spoke about his agency's campaign to educate Americans about the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and the government's new "MyPlate" icon to help consumers build healthful meals. He praised the National Restaurant Association and its members for their partnership on the MyPlate communications effort, including the NRA's new "Ask the Nutritionist" video series.
