Big Organic

Big Organic | Foodie | Scoop.it

For the last fifteen years, the largest multinational food corporations have been intensively buying up organic producers in an effort to enter the profitable niche market.


These companies benefit from the premium charged on organic products, a premium that committed consumers will pay because they support the values of the organic movement: local, ecologically sound, chemical-free, healthy, and ethically produced. They believe that the higher price tag is a result of environmentally friendly practices and that the additional labor required for chemical-free weed control costs more than herbicides.

Casual: Thus Ate Zarathustra

Casual: Thus Ate Zarathustra | Foodie | Scoop.it
There’s nothing like the discovery of an unknown work by a great thinker to set the intellectual community atwitter and cause academics to dart about like those things one sees when looking at a drop of water under a microscope.

White Wolf: Peru Passes Monumental Ten Year Ban on Genetically Engineered Foods

White Wolf: Peru Passes Monumental Ten Year Ban on Genetically Engineered Foods | Foodie | Scoop.it

In a massive blow to multinational agribiz corporations such as Monsanto, Bayer, and Dow, Peru has officially passed a law banning genetically modified ingredients anywhere within the country for a full decade before coming up for another review.
