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. What consumers do not realize is that they pay a small price for this unhealthy food now and will end up paying with the price of their own lives later.

In both essays they want consumers, in a sense, to eat healthy. Pollan states, “pay more, eat less” as one of his key points on how to stay healthy in a food culture that is unhealthy (15). Similar to Pollan’s point, Berry brings up his own point saying, “deal directly with a local farmer, gardener, or orchardist” to avoid the problem of getting processed foods (234); although, both said to follow their guidelines whenever it is possible, they gave reasons that only fortunate people were able to perform. Since most low class families are not able to obtain healthy foods because they are more expensive than genetically modified foods, which is a reason I think why people “ignore certain critical questions about the quality and cost of what they are sold” because they just need to eat for survival (Berry
Everything that we do in life is a choice. It takes more than eating to become obese. Balko States, “We’ll all make better choices about diet, exercise, and personal health when someone else isn’t paying for the consequences of those choices.” People in today’s society don’t take accountability for their unhealthy choices because they don’t have to, the government makes it okay not to. Personal responsibility should be primary in our nutrition choices. The government shouldn’t be trying to control what we eat, but they should instead be giving us a healthier, affordable alternative.
Whether people liked music, sports or movie fans, their brand was associated with celebrities from all fields to promote their product. Pepsi Refresh project took a big decision of not participating in the Super Bowl. The main risk was they may lose a large segment of target audience as people are crazy about football in USA and there are many people who watch Super Bowl. Though they lost a lot of audience their main target was people who use social media. The main target of Pepsi Co did not change, and they stuck to their plans.
Consumers pay whatever the cost is without asking questions such as how fresh and clean it is, where it came from, is it chemical free, how it was manufactured, and many more. The food industry, like all industries, cares more about volume and price rather than quality and health. People are very ignorant about the foods they eat daily, and Berry argues that they need to become more aware. Readers should feel they can eat more responsibly and restore their consciousness of what is involved in eating after reading this
Food selection attitude (Dependent Variable) There are a wide variety of food products being offered in the market, food selection can be said involving a complex process in human life. People choose the foods to eat in order to fulfil their body needs. There are numerous factors that influence people to make decision on choosing foods.

It is important for Pepsi to set it self apart from Coca-Cola and generic colas in a market where the end product is essentially the same type of beverage. Rarity: Coca-Cola differentiation strategy is rare considering that when people thinking of drinking cola, Coca-Cola is typically the first soda that comes to mind. Indirectly engraining an idea that your product is “the” product to choose into consumers’ minds has allowed Coca-Cola to sustain a competitive advantage. Pepsi differentiates their product through brand value by pushing its products on the “new generation.” Although this strategy is not necessarily rare, it has defined the brand since the early 90’s and the time investment makes the strategy more rare. Imitability: Coca-Cola experiences imitability, considering in essence it is a standard cola beverage.
