Food industry vets commence new lobbying practice


WASHINGTON Policy Solutions, a new government and public affairs firm, has opened a practice in Washington, led by three food industry veterans.

The new firm will provide strategic advice to its clients and assistance in coalition building, grassroots program development, media relations, and in community outreach and corporate responsibility programs.

The three principals of the lobbying group include John Motley, former SVP government affairs for the Food Marketing Institute; Barry Scher, former long-time VP public affairs for Giant Foods; and Jay Truitt, former VP government affairs for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. 

"With both a new Congress and administration, there will be increased legislative and regulatory activity. Policy Solution's principals have an extensive experience in working with both Congress and the Executive Branch on a wide range of policy issues, from food safety to energy and from taxes to health care," said Motley.
