Constance Jackson of the Corn Refiners Association, John Allan of American Frozen Food Institute and Jesse Singerman of Prairie Ventures are the newest members of the Sustainable Agriculture Standards Committee, as appointed by Leonardo Academy.
None of the new members represents our industry, meaning we now have seven representatives on the committee rather than eight. Theodore Johnson of Freshblooms/Delaware Valley Floral Group was one of three members to leave his committee seat, creating the three most recent openings.
Applications for the three open seats were due for submission to Leonardo Academy by May 11. Both new applicants and individuals who submitted applications for the previous standards committee selections were considered.
