Avoiding Health Flip-Flops in a Changing Food Supply

Thursday, June 17th, 2:00-3:30pm ET

Changes in the food supply intended to benefit health can have potential unintended effects. This session will engage stakeholders in dialogue about assessing and balancing nutrition tradeoffs when making decisions associated with large-scale food supply changes. These include agriculture, ingredient, and food formulation decisions. Balanced decisions will help maintain consumer trust in the food supply. Attendee participation is invited during the facilitated dialogue.
