Even Warren Buffet must realize that the day of chemical-laden Frankenfood is well and truly receding into the morass of unhealthy, obese citizens who are now desperate for a better way to consume their groceries…food over-processing may have once seemed a necessity, but it has taken its place among the relics of the 20th century….want to turn it around? Offer fewer chemicals, fewer pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, herbicides and ‘flavour enhancers’ and more real, natural content…most North Americans are willing to pay for healthier food, and the Buffets of the world need to learn to play catch up or start poisoning the Third World, like the tobacco industry, to maintain profitability.
The bottom line is always the most important thing to these financiers…why not contribute something positive for the health of potential customers of your brand’s products while maintaining profitability? The two concepts don’t have to be mutually exclusive….
