Foodservice At The New York Produce Show & Conference: Amy Myrdal Miller Of The Culinary Institute Of America To Engage The Industry

Our idea behind the IDEATION FRESH Foodservice Forum was to assemble an intimate group of industry players who would think hard about how to turn a government concept into a reality. After all, the world won’t change its eating habits on demand, the industry will have to make that happen. Fortunately we have a dynamic lady ready to instruct, inspire and encourage the effort to make the dream of increased produce consumption a reality — and to help us create a future that is not only healthy, but delicious as well. We asked Pundit Investigator and Special Projects Editor Mira Slott to get a sense of what the effort in New York will actually be like from Amy Myrdal Miller, MS, RD, Director of Programs and Culinary Nutrition Strategic Initiatives at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.

That man is Richard Bright, Managing Director of Reefer Trends, and we have mentioned him before in the Pundit. He’s coming over from the United Kingdom, and we asked Pundit Investigator and Special Projects Editor Mira Slott to find out what he would focus on in his presentation.
