The Animal Agriculture Alliance announced that its 2019 Stakeholders Summit, themed “A Seat At The Table,” is set for May 8-9 in Kansas City, Missouri. The annual conference brings together thought leaders in the industry to discuss hot-button issues and out-of-the-box ideas.

“The conversation surrounding animal agriculture has been going on for much too long without engagement between key stakeholders,” said Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO. “Taking a seat at the table at this year’s Summit is an opportunity for leaders from all parts of the food supply chain to connect on issues impacting animal agriculture.”

Restaurant, retail and foodservice companies, farms and ranches, government agencies, agribusinesses, and agriculture and food associations are invited to attend Summit and take a seat at the. Summit attendees will learn about key issues facing food and agriculture and gain the supportive network and tools needed for success in their business.
