Kathy_s Commentary
I'm proud the Nebraska Grocery Industry Association continues to be a sponsor of Farmer Goes to Market. This unique newsletter looks at issues from the entire food industry - from farm to fork. We choose interesting topics that we feel need further discussion or clarification. It is important to farmers, producers, processors, retailers and customers that the true facts about food production be thoroughly researched and shared with everyone in the chain. This e-newsletter is  about telling the truth when it is so easy these days to put spin on an issue or take it out of context to make it seem like something it is not. I encourage you to share the newsletter, and if you have comments or questions about any issues, please let us know so we can address them in a future issue.

- Kathy Siefken, Executive Director
