As we begin to anticipate, yearn, and prepare for the day when the COVID-19 pandemic does not dominate the horizon, an area where FMI is predicting an increase in consumer interest is regarding social justice issues and food. We anticipate accelerated attention being given to food waste reduction, fair labor practices, food as medicine, animal welfare concerns and equal access to healthy food.
The FMI Government Relations Committee reviews, formulates and recommends to the Public Affairs Committee the programs and positions necessary to represent the interests of grocery retailers and wholesalers before the federal and state governments. The Committee recommends priorities and directions for the maximum utilization of FMI's resources and assists in influencing and implementing government relations programs at the national and state levels.
