Earlier this year, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a proposed greenhouse gas disclosure rule that would require publicly traded companies to disclose the carbon emissions of every entity up and down their supply chain. This week, NPC CEO Kam Quarles joined the podcast to talk about how that disclosure overreach would place an overwhelming burden on food producers who supply publicly traded processors, restaurants, and retailers. Additionally, Kam provides a recap of NPC’s successful 2022 Summer Meeting in Nashville, which brought together 150+ potato industry members for a week of fun and discussions about the future of the industry.
