Retailers taking wait-and-see approach to Farm Bill

04/16/2018

The release of the draft text of the 2018 Farm Bill by the House of Representatives’ Agriculture Committee – the first step in its reauthorization – has retailers looking to see whether the existing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that they support will remain in place.

The program was a key issue on the agenda during grocers’ recent “Day in Washington” Supermarket Industry Fly-in.

Bridget Goldschmidt, of Store Brands' sister publication Progressive Grocer, wrote this report on the subject.
