Read FoodLogiQ's public comments on Executive Order 14017 for building resilient supply chains regulated by the USDA.
On February 24, 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 14017, ‘‘America’s Supply Chains’’. The order focuses on the need for resilient, diverse, and secure supply chains to ensure U.S. economic prosperity and national security. Such supply chains are needed to address conditions that can reduce critical manufacturing capacity and the availability and integrity of critical goods, products, and services. E.O. 14017 directs that, within one year, the Secretary shall submit a report to the President, through the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA) and the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy (APEP), on the supply chains for the production of agricultural commodities and food products.
FoodLogiQ has submitted public commentary to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to offer guidance on how future regulation can enable greater resilience within the agricultural food system. Read an excerpt of our commentary below.
