PROGRAM: The Food Morality Movement Agriculture is under assault today.  The assault is unrelenting. News stories, under-cover videos, books, films and documentaries all seek to indict modern farming and food production practices.  But, more importantly, they seek to indict the United States farmer.  Increasingly this indictment is presented to the world on the grounds of Religion, Ethics and Morality 

SPEAKER:   Kevin Murphyis the owner and founder of Food-Chain Communications, a marketing firm devoted to helping food-chain stakeholders communicate more effectively within our modern food system.  Murphy began Food-Chain Communications after a 14 year tenure at Vance Publishing Corporation where he served in sales, becoming one of only two sales representatives in the 75-year history of the company to achieve $3,000,000 within a single business year. Murphy then served as marketing manager, director of market development and finally, brand director over the 23 food properties Vance owned.  His responsibilities carried him up and down the food-chain interacting with people from production agriculture all the way through to grocery retailing and foodservice. In 2006, Murphy was tasked with renaming and repositioning the $26 million business unit.  In 2009, he launched Truth In Food a web site devoted to addressing the political, social, philosophical and theological issues that often cascade around food.  Also in 2009, he launched Farmer Goes to Market an initiative designed to bring farmers back to a face-to-face dialogue with grocery retailers thus eliminating the misinformation that often haunts our food chain. Murphy is a graduate of Central Missouri State University where he earned his degree in journalism. Kevin and his wife, Linda, live in Lee’s Summit, Mo., with their five children.

Luncheon and Professional Development Registration - $25(members and students/teachers) and $35(non-members) which can be paid at the door(cash or checks payable to the St. Louis AgriBusiness Club) or by credit card online.
