Welcome to our inaugural issue of Food & Agricultural Quarterly (FAQ). This new, industry-focused publication was designed to focus on the key issues food and agriculture industry stakeholders are facing – regardless of whether you are a small, family-owned farming operation or international food producer.
In our first issue, we bring together three rather diverse articles. First, Emily Taylor describes the phenomenon of urban farming, and the challenges facing such would-be agrarians. Next, Devan Flahive provides us with an update on the USDA food labeling program as it relates to genetically-engineered products. Finally, I’ll walk you through the latest on a slew of antitrust class actions recently brought against major poultry processors.
We hope you enjoy the publication, and we urge you to send us your thoughts about topics you would like us to address in future issues!
