IDFA Joins Broad Array of Groups in "Food Before Fuel" Campaign

Jul 07, 2008

IDFA recently joined the growing list of consumer, policy, anti-hunger, environmental and food industry groups participating in a national "Food Before Fuel" campaign, which is asking Congress to revisit U.S. biofuel mandates and subsidies. Current congressional policies mandate the conversion of more than one-third of all U.S. corn to ethanol, while subsidies and tariffs encourage the diversion of more food to fuel. The International Monetary Fund reports that U.S. food-to-fuel policy is responsible for more than 30 percent of food price inflation globally. To read the press release, click here.
