Good for the Environment, Bad for Consumers?
According to Andrew Binetter, It is no secret that organic foods is big business. In just a few short years, the organic foods industry has grown from a small niche into a multi-billion dollar behemoth, with products available on store shelves around the world. Not all is good with organic foods, however – while organic foods reduce environmental impacts, consumers may feel the pinch. The first concern is about commercial agricultural practices adopted by organic agribusinesses. Some of the largest agribusinesses have lucrative organic production markets, and these companies may only adhere to the minimum standards required by law. This has served to erode consumer confidence in the safety and quality of organic food products. Pricing is another concern; organic foods still command a premium over traditionally-produced foods. To combat consumer concerns, industry advocates suggest adopting more stringent standards and revisiting pricing structures to make organics more palatable for consumer budgets. In 2019, there has been a lot of progress in this. Organic products are featured prominently on grocery store shelves nationwide.
