NJFC Welcomes Redford As Associate Director Of Public Affairs

Delaney Redford

The New Jersey Food Council has named Delaney Redford as the associate director of public affairs for the NJFC.

“Delaney Redford brings to our state association a well-rounded background in policy analysis and communications in New Jersey,” said Linda Doherty, NJFC president and CEO, noting Redford has demonstrated talents in serving constituents, building consensus and effective social media campaigns.

Prior to joining NJFC, Redford worked in the Newark office of Sen. Robert Menendez, focusing on constituent relations on public policies and gained experience at a law firm conducting background research on laws and regulations.

Redford also worked for the U.S. Department of State Diplomat in Residence program, where she helped with the creation of social media campaigns such as “#Why I Joined Wednesday.” In the campaign, foreign service members shared stories about why they joined the state department.

Doherty said the NJFC has an aggressive policy and political agenda and is eager to have Redford to advocate for issues of critical importance to the food retail and distribution industry, as the New Jersey Legislature is debating the fiscal 2023 state budget and considering labor and workforce proposals.

Delaney will also focus on member rollout of the plastic law and bag ban, infant formula crisis, revising the industry Green Guidelines, workforce issues and overseeing the NJFC committee activities.

Delaney has an undergraduate degree from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey with a major in International Relations and a minor in Law, Justice and Society, with Civic Scholar Honors.

The New Jersey Food Council is the preeminent trade association representing almost 400 companies including 1,200 retail food stores, wholesalers, manufacturing and service companies that collectively employ more than 200,000 associates in New Jersey.
