The food industry and the system, and how the system can work. Co-operation and recognition of common interests by politicians, consumers, labour, and industry. Two purposes to the speaker's participation in the federal government's annual Agricultural Outlook Conference: "to urge that the government establish a coherent national policy on food," and "to suggest that … they should open the conference up in future years to others from the food industry, and to include the consumer." Statistics to help establish the food industry's credentials. The three main segments in the industry and a description of their contributions to the control and reduction in food costs. Some predictions for the future: factors and expectations. The Partnership for Prosperity Conference in Ontario as a positive example of dialogue needed. The importance of listening to all the various players in the industry, including the consumer.
