However, after the novel’s release, the government was forced to create a system to ensure the food being produced was safe and made in an ethical fashion. First was the Pure Food and Drug Act, which ensured that food and drugs being made were clean and free from pathogenic agents. Today, agencies like the FDA and USDA are in charge of ensuring that food is safe, factories are safe, and that the food is healthy and clean enough for eating.

Introduction Sustainability has been mentioned as a goal of businesses. During the mid 1990s John Elkington created the triple bottom line plan under the concept of sustainability. Sustainability can be defined in many ways, but the simplest way is “Ability to sustain” (Sustainability, 2010). The triple bottom line is an accounting framework, and there are three dimensions of sustainability among them people, planet and profit (3Ps).

John Elkington designed a framework called Triple Bottom Line(TBL) (cite), which allows employees or entrepreneurs to adopt it for evaluating their performances regarding three dimensions people, planet, and profit. Starbucks is one of successful corporations which uses the Triple Bottom Line.
