International Foodservice Ethics Symposium Hosted Online By Penn State

Penn State Food Decisions Research Laboratory - Foodservice Ethics

The purpose of the symposium is to gain a collective, interdisciplinary and international understanding of the issues surrounding food ethics in the foodservice environment. Foodservice ethics relates to the human conduct along the supply chain of production, distribution, preparation and consumption of food. Food away from home (FAFH), particularly in the foodservice environment, is an increasing proportion of food consumption and expenditure. The complexity of this system, and the significance of FAFH activity in people’s lives, makes this an important discussion.

Amit Sharma, associate professor of hospitality finance and director of the Food Decisions Research Laboratory at Penn State, will serve as moderator.

Panelists will include:

  • Robert Chiles, Penn State
  • Robin DiPietro, University of South Carolina
  • Angeline Jaykumar, University of Pune, India
  • Hema Kesa, University of Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Heather Monteiro, University of Nevada Las Vegas
  • Kevin Roberts, Kansas State University
  • Laure Saulais, Institut Paul Bocuse, France
