In the first of our 3 panel discussions at Food Dialogues New York, experts gather to debate some of the biggest questions in modern food, health, and agriculture. Questions came from our website, twitter, and straight from attendees at the event and include topics such as:

What more can be done to ensure consumers have access to the right kind of information?
What tools are marketers using to promote certain types of food choices over others?
What additional voices are needed to help consumers navigate the supermarket and restaurant menu?

You can continue the discussion in comments or at http://www.fooddialogues.com and don't forget to watch parts 2 and 3 where we gather specialists on antibiotics and gmos!
