USDA reveals food system transformation investments


The Biden administration has announced its framework to transform the country’s food system.

During an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack detailed more than $2 billion in funding to improve markets.

“The transformation that needs to take place has to be comprehensive,” Vilsack said. “It has to touch on all elements of our food system: production, processing, distribution and aggregation, and market development.”

He says the plan will address longstanding issues intensified by the pandemic.
