Mark your calendars for the 2012 Food Integrity Summit — “A forum on ethics, values and trust.” The 2012 summit, scheduled for Oct. 23-24, will be the first-ever forum on ethics, values and trust in today’s food system and will provide food system stakeholders an opportunity to address the fundamental challenge of building trust in today’s food and food suppliers.

Organizers say the objectives of the 2012 Food Integrity Summit are:

  • Better understanding of current consumer perception and concern about today’s food.
  • Improve the ability to work with stakeholders with diverse interests to build trust in food.
  • Identify resources that can help build trust.

The summit will include keynote speakers, breakout sessions and the introduction of the 2012 CFI Consumer Trust Survey results.  The event will take place at the Hilton Rosemont, Chicago, Ill. To check out the full agenda, go to
