The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans will be released at the end of the year leaving nutrition professionals in need of new action-based messages for their consumers. Learn how to translate science into practical, healthy food choices and consumer-friendly social media sound bites that motivate, inspire, change and engage consumers.
2015 Conference Exhibitors/Donors
Western Dairy Association is a non-profit, dairy farmer-funded organization that works to promote dairy products as part of a healthy lifestyle. We are passionate about developing, implementing and leading health programs for children and schools , science-based nutrition, community and consumer education and, of course, dairy farm families, dairy farm best practices, dairy cows and dairy food products.
Consumers aren’t getting the real story about American agriculture and all that goes into growing and raising their food. We’re a group of volunteer farm women and we plan to change that by doing something extraordinary. Our program is called CommonGround and it’s all about starting a conversation between women who grow food, and the women who buy it. It’s a conversation based on our personal experiences as farmers, but also on science and research. Our first goal is to help consumers understand that their food is not grown by a factory. It’s grown by people and it’s important to us that you understand and trust the process. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
