Virtual interdisciplinary research symposium in foodservice decisions

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The purpose of this symposium moderated by Dr. Amit Sharma is to gain a collective, interdisciplinary and international understanding of the issues surrounding food ethics in the foodservice environment.

Ethics of foodservice relates to the human conduct along the supply chain of production, distribution, preparation, and consumption. Food away from home (FAFH), particularly in the foodservice environment, is an increasing proportion of our food consumption and expenditure.

The complexity of this system, and the significance of the FAFH activity in our lives makes this an important discussion. Panelist will present this specific point of view, followed by a brief discussion. We hope you will be able to join us and contribute to this discussion, either virtually or in person in room 116, Bio Behavioral Health Building on Penn State’s University Park campus on December 9, 2016.
