Forum eyes food security issues

Food security will be the focus at a University of Guelph forum on Feb. 19 and 20.
Sponsored by the U of G’s Food Institute, the National Food Security Forum will bring together Canadian academics, industry professionals and other speakers at the Guelph Delta Conference Centre.
It will explore food processing, retailing and distributing, and consumer trends in the food industry, said U of G professor Sylvain Charlebois
He is co-chairing the event with a University of Saskatchewan professor who was involved with a similar forum held in Saskatchewan last May.
“Exploring the challenge of global food security will help our community to consider the nature of our national food systems and our role in the development of global food systems,” Charlebois said in a news release.
“This forum can provide information on how to deal with everything from natural constraints to satisfying global food needs, to climatic factors such as flooding and natural disasters, to sociopolitical changes, to even how war, corruption and ethnic unrest impacts on food security,” he said.
The forum is open all interested in food security, food processing, retailing and distributing, and consumer trends in food.
