The National Restaurant Association is partnering with the Center for Food Integrity (CFI) to host the 2011 CFI Food System Summit in Chicago Oct. 25-26.

The 2011 CFI Food System Summit, "Food Choices – Challenges – Realities," will bring together industry experts and key stakeholders to take an in-depth look into issues surrounding consumer food choices, the evolving challenges of those choices and their effect on our food system and supply.

Scott DeFife, executive vice president, Policy and Government Affairs for the NRA, said the two organizations work closely with each another, and this year's Summit provides an opportunity to leverage that partnership by reaching influential audiences throughout the food system.

The Summit will include four breakout sessions:

  • Technology and Innovation;
  • Food Safety;
  • Food Animal Well-Being and
  • Nutrition and Health.

In addition, CFI officials will share results from the 2011 CFI Consumer Trust Survey.

Dr. Jason Clay, senior vice president, Market Transformations with the World Wildlife Fund, will present a keynote address during the event. Joe Quinn, senior director, Issue Management and Strategic Outreach for Wal-Mart Corporate Affairs, will provide the closing keynote address.

The 2011 Food Summit will take place Oct. 25 and Oct. 26, at the InterContinental Rosemont Hotel, Rosemont, Ill.
