Sec. Vilsack to announce plans to transform the U.S. food system

In just a few hours, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack will announce a plan to transform America’s food system.

It is a $2.5 billion plan that includes some previously-announced initiatives, like expanding meat and poultry processing, but it also contains $600 million in new spending for food supply chain infrastructure, $400 million for regional food business centers, and $300 million for a new organic transition initiative.

The money will come from the 2023 Farm Bill.
