The Center for Food Integrity will hold its 6th annual Food System Summit, “Food Choices – Challenges – Realities,” on Oct. 25-26 at the InterContinental Rosemont Hotel in Chicago. The event is co-sponsored by the International Food Information Council and the National Restaurant Association.

Jason Clay, senior vice president, Market Transformation, will be the keynote speaker for the event. He specializes in agriculture and aquaculture, the implications of biofuels, animal protein consumption and corporate social responsibility.

“Dr. Clay’s participation at the 6th annual Food System Summit is intended to help food- industry leaders explore ways in which we can provide food for a growing global population using fewer resources,” says Terry Fleck, CFI executive director. “Dr. Clay’s expertise in international agriculture and environmental issues can help guide the food industry in developing responsible practices that will feed the world.”

The summit also will include an overview of the latest CFI Consumer Trust Survey results, which presents an annual snapshot of consumer attitudes. Breakout sessions with panel discussions focused on food-animal well-being, food safety, nutrition and health, as well as technology and innovation are planned during the two-day event.

Registration for the full two-day conference is $495 per person. Single-day registration is available for either day at $275 per person.
