A Minnesota pork producer has captured first place in the Animal Agriculture Allliance’s photo contest with her picture of a porkchop with the tagline “when you only had one job ... and you nailed it.” Taking top honors in the Alliance’s “A Seat At The Table” farmer photo contest, Wanda Patsche earned a trip to the Alliance’s 2019 Stakeholders Summit May 8-9 at the InterContinental at the Plaza Hotel in Kansas City, Mo. Patsche is a hog farmer from Martin County, Minn.

This year’s Summit will kick off with a live consumer focus group to help attendees better understand consumer perceptions of animal agriculture. Summit attendees will have the unique opportunity to hear directly from their customers and ask them questions about how they find information about food and farming during the focus group panel, conducted by Anne-Marie Roerink of 210 Analytics. Panelists will be asked to share how they decide what to buy at the grocery store and order off of the restaurant menu, including whether issues like animal welfare, sustainability and antibiotic use factor into their decisions.

Roerink provides customized research with a specialty in food retailing for clients such as the North American Meat Institute, Food Marketing Institute, National Grocers Association, National Confectioners Association and many others. Through countless consumer studies, she has developed an excellent perspective on the ever-changing wants and needs of the grocery shopper in a one-size-fits-no-one world. Prior to founding 210 Analytics, Roerink was the Head of Research for the Food Marketing Institute. Roerink designs and authors the annual Power of Meat study, along with similar studies in produce, deli prepared, frozen, SmartFood, bakery, candy and other categories.

The 2019 Summit has been approved for seven CEUs eligible for ARPAS members. Discounted registration rates are available through April 1. Click here to view the agenda and register.
