Overview: Hosted by Field to Market, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, the National Pork Board, the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, the 2017 Sustainable Agriculture Summit convened diverse stakeholders from across the food and agricultural supply chain to discuss opportunities to advance continuous improvement in agricultural sustainability. The vision of the Summit is to strengthen the supply chain network of producers, agribusinesses, retailers, and influencers who drive continuous improvement in agricultural sustainability and deliver food, fiber, and fuel to a growing world. The event provided opportunities for members of the agricultural supply chain to engage with leading experts and learn more about key sustainability challenges and opportunities.

Breakout Session: The ILSI Research Foundation, University of Arkansas and the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops organized a one-hour Breakout Session on Thursday at 9am. This session presented new and on-going efforts to enhance the productivity, resilience, and sustainability of domestic produce supply chains, including a new 4-year USDA-funded project: “Fruit & Vegetable Supply Chains: Climate Adaptation & Mitigation Opportunities,” as well as the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops’ on-going work to develop and maintain sustainability performance metrics for specialty crops. All participants were asked to join a facilitated roundtable discussion on future trends in these supply chains, which are now undergoing significant innovation and transformation as a result of multiple drivers: consumer preference for fresh produce grown locally; climate change & increased competition for natural resources; cost & availability of labor; efforts to improve sustainability profiles; and the rise of protected & peri-urban production.

The aim of the 12th International Food Data Conference (IFDC) is to exchange experiences among specialists from around the world and compile food composition data and their applications in the different areas such as nutrition, health, biodiversity, food technology, biotechnology, food policies, food nutrition education, and agriculture programs and policies.

The ILSI Research Foundation presented the World Nutrient Databases for Dietary Studies (WNDDS), a new resource designed to enable users to explore, analyze and filter food composition databases and tables for countries and regions in a user-friendly format.
