What does sustainable animal agriculture mean? Farm and Food Care and the Centre for Food Integrity announced that they will host the first of its kind - North American Sustainable Agriculture Forum. The form will be held September 17 and 18 2012 at the Delta Meadowvale in Mississauga, Ontario. The registration fee is only $150.00 per person. The forum will be a unique opportunity to bring leaders interested in sustainable agriculture from both Canada and the U.S. One of the key objectives that organizers are hoping to achieve is a definition of sustainable agriculture as a tool to help communicate more effectively while building the confidence of the consumer.
“It will be a unique opportunity for farmers to talk with processors, retailers, food service researchers and government, all actively engaged in providing safe, affordable and sustainable food for consumers” says Crystal Mackay, Executive Director of the Farm & Food Care Foundation.
