The chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, top executives from the grain and rail industries, and the Food and Drug Administration’s top food and feed safety official will headline the program when the National Grain and Feed Association kicks off its 116th annual convention on March 18–20 in Charleston, S.C.
During the three-day event, industry leaders also will focus on the aftermath of the MF Global Inc. bankruptcy, including initial policy recommendations from the National Grain and Feed Association’s MF Global Task Force on ways to enhance protection of customer funds. On March 19, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow will keynote the convention and is expected to provide an update on the committee’s plans to begin drafting a 2012 farm bill. Immediately following, the top official at the Union Pacific Railroad — Acting President and CEO Jack Koraleski — will deliver a major address on rail policy issues and efforts to give customers a competitive advantage.
On March 20, the convention program will be headlined by a keynote industry address by Soren Schroder, president and chief executive officer with Bunge North America Inc. His address will focus on growth and demand in global trade. Also headlining the program on March 20 will be Michael Taylor, the FDA's deputy commissioner for foods, who will preview the agency’s proposed regulations expected to be issued soon to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act that will affect grain elevators, feed manufacturers, grain processors and exporters.
