Had he gone further into the report he would have found that organic fruits and vegetables are significantly closer in price to conventionally grown ones. We are all paying extra for the fallout from GMOs. This case indeed shows that food labeling issues are not only vital and extremely important today, but also that there is very hard to come to a solution. It would be very easy to label everything, require companies to let consumers know every single ingredient and in turn, hope to increase global health levels. However, it seems that opposing side has very strong arguments and companies are reluctant to sacrifice their profits in order to improve consumers health, which, very interestingly, is sometimes argued would not be achieved by doing so
Also try to reduce my intake of carbonated and sweetened drinks and instead drink more water which is a healthier alternative. Consumers can choose to live a healthy lifestyle by consuming organic products and avoid eating fast food. Not every product that is advertised on television and in newspapers is healthy for people and the only persons that can make a change is the customer. Choosing to eat in fast food restaurants is cheap and very convenient nowadays. Knowing that: farmers are being manipulated; fast food is being supported by the government and consumers always have the choice of living healthy people need to take a decision that will change their life.
Wal-Mart also strives and lives on the motto of “Every day Low Prices.” This motto has gone so far that they now price match to other stores for the customers. This simply means that if the same product is found at another store for a cheaper price Wal-Mart will sell it to the customer for the price that it was found listed as at the other store. Customer
However, people’s action to sue fast food companies seems hardly sensible, because their foods are not poisoned, spoilt, or molded. Although their foods are far from healthy and their advertising tactics are extremely cunning, fast food restaurants are not the only one to blame for today’s rocketing rates of obesity-related health problems. It is entirely a person’s decision whether or not he or she chooses to eat fast foods. It is largely known that fast foods are junks for the body, yet people still buy them wanting a quick fix for their rumbling stomach. People can always avoid fast foods and make healthier options if they want to, and suing the fast food restaurants will not make them lose any weight or fat they have in their body.
The more products being produced the more money being acquired. Even with that said, the money did not take into consideration all of the side effects mass food production would do to society. Quaility was also not a factor given any thought when food companies started producing particatlly prepped food products. Thus leaving the human body to decipher what it was eating and how it could efficiently digest all these additives and preservatives it was now consuming. With this change in food production and the
The proposed goal of GMOs is to increase food production. This will supposedly in turn lower food costs, and make it easier to distribute food to feed poor populations around the world. However research shows that global food production has increased enough to, “feed 10 billion people”, one and a half times more than what we need to feed every single person on Earth (The Huffington Post). And yet with this charming initiative having been accomplished, there are still groups of people going hungry everyday. This is not to say that companies like Monsanto are to blame for leaving people hungry or in poverty, but it questions if their goals are based on true concern.
He has proved that product design can not only make businesses successful but also change the world, by solving pressing social problems. His projects like “One laptop per child” and “See better to learn better” have made me realize my social responsibility as a product designer. Inspired by the way he uses product design to create social impact, I started looking for ways to solve real world problems and not just first world problems, through design. For one of my recent projects, through research, I learnt that expiry dates on milk cartons are mere approximations. Misguided by these inaccurate expiry dates, consumers dispose thousands of gallons of fresh milk every year.
For example, in the article “How a Melted Bar of Chocolate Changed Our Kitchens" it states " It took more than 20 years, a lot of patience, and many mistakes before Raytheon perfected a microwave oven that people could use and could afford." This means that years of making mistakes lead to the perfect conventional microwave. That is a way that mistakes improved an item. Mistakes also helped Thomas Edison, according to his statement that inventing was 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration. That pretty much means that inventions are a lot of hard work and mistakes that lead to a final invention that might be successful.
The only good thing is the pharmaceutical sectors and the multispecialty hospitals are flourishing these days. I do not want to put the whole blame on fast food outlets and people’s eating habits. They are just one among the reasons. The truth is we are all “educated fools”. Despite knowing the deadly consequences of junk food, we go for it denying the fact that they make us unhealthier and less attractive every time we consume it.
As a general manager, his responsibilities include; overseeing the employees, running the day to day operations, and ensuring customer satisfaction to make the sale. In terms of authority, John is allowed to enforce rules and regulations on the employees, make decisions on ordering products, and make choices regarding customers. If the employees are not following protocol or acting inappropriately he is in charge of taking action and putting a stop to their inappropriate behaviors. When the companies call to take our order for our food and drinks, sometimes John is in charge of seeing how much product we have and determining how much to order. Lastly, he has the authority to give free food to customers if for some reason they are unsatisfied with their food.
One area that I am surprised that was mentioned is brand loyalty. Although the resell and shipping industry is unknown to the normal everyday consumer, in the commercial world corporations like Dot foods in vital to the longevity of their business and future success. Therefore, I assume over the years, Dot Foods has gained traction and become known as a corporation who delivers economical products that meet all government regulations. Which with restaurants like Chipotle who lose business after a health scare, souring product for a reputable is critical.
