US Responsible Pork Symposium, Feb. 23-25

The 2nd Annual Responsible Pork Symposium will be held Feb. 23-25, 2009 with more than 200 pork-chain professionals expected to attend. Last years attendees included representatives from all pork food-chain sectors, including consumers, university leaders, retailers, nutritionists, veterinarians, producers, packers, activists, government officials and general industry consultants.

Pork magazine, in partnership with the Centre for Food Integrity, Michigan State University and Purdue University, will host industry stakeholders for a combination of panel-based discussions and presentations covering issues such as food safety, animal well-being, Human capital, environmental and consumer choices.

Panel discussion and presentations will address threats and challenges that confront the U.S. pork food-chain today and in the future. "Last year, some of the discussions became very lively and controversial topics were debated," says Cliff Becker, vice president/publishing director for Pork magazine. "This is exactly the type of exchange we had hoped would transpire, and we believe these dialogues need to continue. We plan to mix things up for the second annual symposium to ensure that even more key issues are covered".
