U.S. Ag Secretary Vilsack calls for innovation in food supply

"There is a need for greater diversification of the American food supply and US diets need to change, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in his keynote speech at the launch of the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition (BCFN) in the United States."

Concerning the upcoming 2012 Farm Bill, Vilsack said that money would move policy.  He hopes that agricultural research is not the place where budget cuts will be made.
