Clemson professor to chair SC Food Policy Council


CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — A Clemson University professor is the choice as chairman of the organization that promotes a healthy agriculture industry in South Carolina.

Clemson says associate professor David Lamie has been appointed as chairman of the South Carolina Food Policy Council.

The council was set up in 2006 to help South Carolinians make healthier and more informed choices about food. It serves as a forum for members to share their concerns and their progress on food-related programs and initiatives in the state.

Lamie is principal investigator for Clemson's $750,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture for the South Carolina New Farmer program. He was instrumental in launching S.C. MarketMaker, an online marketing resource that connects South Carolina food producers with markets and customers.
