Statement: July 17 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Hearing
July 16 2014
Victoria Coley

I appreciate this opportunity to provide comments to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) as it prepares recommendations for the 2015 Dietary Guidelines.

As a mother, I am very concerned about the rising cost of food. The DGAC’s shift from diet and nutrition to environmental issues will increase food costs for all Americans at a time when consumers are already struggling with higher prices at the grocery store.

According to the Wall Street Journal, “in California, the biggest U.S. producer of agricultural products, about 95% of the state is suffering from drought conditions, according to data from the U.S. Drought Monitor. This has led to water shortages that are hampering crop and livestock production.”

As a result, U.S. retail food prices are expected to increase up to 3.5% this year.  Consumers are seeing similar price hikes on breakfast staples like bacon, coffee, and orange juice because of global supply problems.

The price of beef reached its highest price point in almost three decades in February at $5.28 per pound. Analysts estimate that prices will likely stay high for some time because of growing demand in some Asian countries. Corn growers are also hurting because of China's recent rejection of 1.45 million tons of U.S. corn, which lead to American grain companies having to absorb $427 million in lost sales....
