WASHINGTON — The Alliance to Feed the Future has been formed to communicate how food is produced to the media and consumers. The Alliance is comprised of 52 groups that span all sectors of the food value chain and include professional societies, commodity groups, industry and academia to coordinate and tell an accurate story of modern food production.
“The more consumers understand how their food is produced, the more they can appreciate the role modern agriculture plays in providing safe, affordable, and nutritious food,” said Dave Schmidt, president and chief executive officer at the International Food Information Council, which will coordinate the Alliance. “The Alliance will be a clearinghouse of resources to increase consumer understanding of this role.”
