Frozen food and beverage makers depend on a sustainable, robust, cost-effective energy supply to grow, harvest and transport food, and remain competitive in the global market.
AFFI supports commonsense energy and environmental policies that balance environmental improvement with economic growth and do not lead to increased food prices.
AFFI’s energy-related priorities include:
- Reforming the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) by eliminating the corn-ethanol mandate.
- Opposing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) efforts to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
- Promoting energy efficiency and advanced technologies.
- Reforming the regulatory process and modernizing the permitting system for energy projects.
