Uncovering the social and corporate forces that shape our eating habits  Judge

Candice Choi is a business reporter for The Associated Press in New York City. She has covered major U.S. food and beverage companies for five years, most recently focusing on how food companies influence attitudes about healthy eating. Her investigations have shown how candy makers help shape nutrition science and how Coca-Cola worked behind the scenes to help shape a nonprofit dedicated to fighting obesity. Choi also is interested in how legacy newsrooms can transform their storytelling techniques to ensure their reporting remains engaging across all formats. Before joining the business news department, she worked in the AP's Albany, N.Y. bureau, and at daily newspapers in California. She is a graduate of Rutgers University, where she majored in English and minored in political science.
