If you have an opinion that natural and whole foods are the real thing and therefore are the superior choice, you may be quite surprised to learn that the largest food giants in the world have no interest in investing in the production of natural foods. This is odd, but it is true. Why? Well, according to my information, the biggest food companies seem to prefer to focus on the production of highly processed and nutrient-poor foods that can be mass-produced and shipped all over the world with little attention to the quality, freshness or nutrition of the food itself. This makes for a very inefficient use of our precious natural resources and raises questions as to the validity of the claim that natural and whole foods are the way to go.
However, it is not too late for the food industry to catch up with the rest of the planet, especially when the major players are so deeply entrenched in the business of animal agriculture. The sad truth is that the vast majority of people in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom eat foods that have been processed and chemically treated with hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals. What does this have to do with organic and natural foods manufacturers? Everything!
The bottom line is this: The largest food manufacturers in the world do not want you to buy organic and natural foods. They are not concerned with the environment, they are more interested in their profits than in providing you with a healthy, life-long diet. If the climate change that has occurred due to greenhouse gases is going to be reversed, the natural food manufacturers will not be affected because they do not “benefit” from the warming trend at all. The reason that I bring this up is that there are so many ways that consumers can help the environment, and the benefits of eating organically grown foods far outweigh any perceived convenience. As consumers, we have the power to influence the way that we shop and purchase products, and I think that consumers who care about the environment and the health of future generations should start shopping and buying organic and regenerative agriculture products.
