    Consumers are changing the food system. I think there’s a huge paradigm shift going on of people actually reading labels and demanding better products and trying to understand what are in their products. I think it’s a really healthy shift, and I think the more – especially those of us that are manufacturers – can encourage that, the better it’s going to be and the quicker the change will be.

    What consumers can start to do is actually read ingredient labels to start to understand what’s in their food and start to question how our food is being sourced. We spend far more time investigating what kind of car to buy than we do what kind of food to put in our body. If consumers just took some of that time and devoted it to food sourcing, food questions, we’d be a lot healthier. Read More
