Blog: When in Rome…

Catherine Sleep | 14 June 2004

I’m off at the crack of dawn tomorrow to attend this week’s CIES World Food Business Summit in Rome. I look forward to hearing from a raft of eminent speakers, including fat tax advocate Marion Nestle. She’s bound to rattle a few cages, especially as she’s followed onto the podium by Mats Lederhausen from McDonald’s, who is planning to “share lessons on nutrition” with us. Inspired scheduling from CIES.

Other high-profile speakers include Mike Moore, former director general of the WTO, Wal-Mart International president John Menzers and Ahold CEO Anders Moberg.

If any of you are attending, please do come over and say hello as it’s always good to meet readers.
