Will the voice of frozen foods be heard? AFFI Government Action Summit just one week away!

Have you, or someone from your company, registered for AFFI’s Government Action Summit?  We invite you to tell your company’s story in Washington, D.C., Sept. 12-13, to offer members of Congress an authentic, and informed discussion on the frozen food and beverage industry as it personally relates to you and your company.

The timing of this year’s Summit and your participation is crucial as Congress will begin Farm Bill discussions where programs like USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable program and Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINIGrant Programs will be addressed.  Our number one goal of advancing food safety will also be a hot topic, along with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations. 

In fact, we’ll hear directly from USDA Acting Deputy Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Jason Hafemeister (pictured left) who will discuss key U.S. objectives for agriculture and the food industry. 

AFFI’s featured speaker lineup also includes Robyn Boerstling (pictured right), Vice President, Infrastructure, Innovation and Human Resources Policy at the National Association of Manufacturers to discuss issues relating to immigration and the workforce.

Register today for your chance to hear from these speakers on timely and impactful issues for the frozen food and beverage industry.
