The Specialty Food Association condemns all acts of racism. Violent attacks against the Asian community made during this pandemic are heinous and must be prosecuted. We have been reaching out to our AAPI members and will continue to speak out against hate and violence.
As an Association, we are committed to do the work necessary to foster fundamental changes that address racism and exclusion in our industry. We believe positive and collective action is possible, can impact change, and ultimately bring an end to race-based inequality.
We encourage our entire community to join us in helping to address these inequalities wherever we find them. We have a history of supporting each other through extraordinary and transformative times and this moment calls for that support again.
There is no place for racism in any form in a successful future. Everyone must be welcome to the table.
