Food Business in the News "The outlook for dairy is very rosy right now. Without export markets to create an outlet, the only way you could grow was if your neighbor disappeared." "China buying has been through the roof. We shifted from a period of structural oversupply to structural undersupply." Jay Waldvogel, senior vice-president of strategy and international development for Dairy Farmers of America. Bloomberg Businessweek Alan Levitt, spokesman for the U.S. Dairy Export Council, commenting on how international demand has impacted the U.S. dairy industry. June 9-22, 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek June 9-22, 2014 "When the major retailers start to mass adopt a concept, then that certainly acts as an accelerator for changing consumer behavior. However, we've been tracking a number of macroeconomic 'megatrends' that we see slowly reshaping the grocery landscape. Specifically, the changing technology landscape, increased urbanization and changing demographics create the perfect recipe for on-line grocery retail." Steven Barr, PwC's U.S. retail & consumer practice leader, discussing opportunities in on-line retailing. CNBC June 10, 2014 "The porous nature of wood enables it to absorb and retain bacteria, therefore bacteria generally colonize not only the surface but also the inside layers of wood." Monica Metz, chief of the dairy and egg branch of the Office of Food Safety, in a letter to the New York State Agriculture Department. The letter has worried some that the agency may ban the use of wooden shelves for the aging of cheese. The New York Times June 10, 2014 "The F.D.A. is mixing up the hygienic practices of a producer with the materials being used in production. If you have an unhygienic operation in the production of food, probably everything is going to be infected, so is the F.D.A. going to ban the use of stainless steel when it finds Listeria on it?" Representative Peter Welch of Vermont discussing the Food and Drug Administration's recent focus on the use of wooden shelves for the aging of cheese. "It's really are you looking to eat or be eaten. When you look at sales of bacon and fresh meat and meat snacks, last year sales were all up double digits. That must also be of interest to companies looking for where the growth is." Nicholas Fereday, a food industry analyst with Rabobank International, commenting on the recent competition to acquire Hillshire Brands.
