The National Restaurant Association's President and CEO Dawn Sweeney has been named one of 2014's "Most Powerful People in Food" by The Daily Meal. Sweeney was recognized for her leadership in directing NRA's food safety, environmental sustainability, foodservice education and children's nutrition initiatives, a news release said.

The Daily Meal's list of the top 50 recipients is compiled by Daily Meal editors with the criterion that the individuals substantially impact the quality and variety of the American diet, or the way Americans think about it. Included in this year's list are heads of national food processing and distribution companies, retail food outlets and recognized restaurateurs.

"We are proud of Dawn's inclusion among such a prestigious list of industry leaders," said Ken Conrad, chairman of the National Restaurant Association. "Dawn has led NRA and NRA's Educational Foundation to new heights — advocating and promoting important initiatives that benefit America's restaurants and its over 13 million workers."
