On 2023 October 12, the Food Forum will host a webinar that will look at the challenges of defining sustainability for food product labeling. Invited speakers will explore the variables for defining sustainability, the impact of sustainability labelling on consumers, challenges for regulatory agencies, and research gaps and future considerations. Speakers include: Brian Ronholm, Consumer Reports, Rebecca Walker Reczek, The Ohio State University, Arlin Wasserman, Changing Tastes, Julia Ensor, Federal Trade Commission, Sean B. Cash, Tufts University. Hosted by Heather D. Cook, Meredith Parr, and Cypress Lynx.
The Food Forum convenes scientists, administrators, and policymakers from academia, government, industry, non-profits, professional societies, and consumer groups on an ongoing basis to issues related to food (including safety, regulation, systems, nutrition, and health) and identifying approaches to address them. It provides a unique way to identify areas of concordance among these diverse interest groups. It does not make recommendations, nor does it offer specific advice. It compiles information, develops options, and brings interested parties together.
