Event Details

Anna will share how industry leaders deploy stealth public relations tactics: using front groups and trade associations to push coordinated messages, attacking sustainable food advocates, and defending the chemical agriculture industry. Taking their cues from the tobacco industry, dozens of food companies and trade groups have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in the past few years on these opaque public relations tactics.

The Food Studies Saturday Seminars are inspired by University of Pacific’s Master of Arts in Food Studies. The seminars feature food experts, food entrepreneurs, and food scholars – all looking to enrich your knowledge about the food world. Each presentation features a fascinating food topic followed by an opportunity to mingle, discuss, and enjoy light refreshments.

The event is free, but registration is required, please register here.
