CFI’s Animal Agriculture Committee Hits Membership Milestone

Kansas City, Mo. (Jan. 12, 2011)– The Center for Food Integrity’s (CFI) Animal Agriculture Committee has more than doubled its membership since its formation two years. The group, which had a roster of 18 members in 2008 ended 2010 with 50 organizations and companies working to build consumer trust and confidence in today’s food animal system.

“2010 was a great year for the CFI Animal Agriculture Committee,” said Terry Fleck, CFI’s executive director. “The collective wisdom of this group is truly impressive and we look forward to another productive year in bolstering public trust.”

The CFI Animal Agriculture Committee brings together a national network of well informed and highly motivated individuals and organizations dedicated to helping build public understanding of the commitment today’s farmers have for the responsible production of meat, milk and eggs.

“This group helps guide us as we develop programming to address issues impacting the food animal industry,” said Fleck.
