Folks are really concerned about the quality of our food and the price increases. It costs a lot to feed a family in the United States these days and it is getting tougher and tougher to feed them properly with quality food on a Middle Class budget.
Perhaps you have noticed grocery prices creep up. And of course I too have seen the trend in Grocery Costs, and of course worry about all the processed foods, as they do provide food, but seem to also not be as good for the bio-system. Just look at Americans, over weight, serious issues.
Of course I would like to point out it is a choice to buy cheaper food and it takes more work, control and cost to eat well. I eat good food and it is not easy and the cost is significantly higher; fruit, nuts, vegetables, etc. and it is a choice.
Myself, I come from an extended farm family myself and yes I “get it” and see the different sides of all the issues. The over regulation on family farms, organic growers and shippers is also causing prices to increase throughout the food chain and this gets passed onto the consumer; you and I.
Having been in the Truck Wash Business and Heavy into the Steam Cleaning, Power Wash Business, our customer base is also on all sides of the game and market place. Cleaning grocery stores, corporate facilities, produce bins, tractors, equipment, trucks (independent and large), etc. When we talk with all these folks they are basically saying that they are taking less profit and the prices for consumers keep going up.
There are quite a few issues involved in Grocery Prices, Over Regulation and Quality of Food and these issues must be discussed. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007.
