Food Business in the News "Shiva is lionized, particularly in the West, because she presents the romantic view of the farm. Truth be damned. People in the rich world love to dabble in a past they were lucky enough to avoid - you know, a couple of chickens running around with the children in the back yard. But farming is bloody tough, as anyone who does it knows. It is like those people who romanticize villages in the developing world. Nobody who ever lived in one would ever do that." "They are ruining the planet. They are destroying this beautiful world." Vandana Shiva, an Indian environmentalist opposed to the use of bioengineering to produce food. Gordon Conway, a professor at London's Imperial College, discussing the anti-G.M.O. views of Vandana Shiva, an Indian environmentalist opposed to the use of bioengineering to produce food.

Michael Taylor, the Food and Drug Administration's deputy commissioner for food, discussing the regulation of food additives. The Washington Post Aug. 17, 2014 "When I went to Dean & DeLuca last week, I spotted 'cold pressed juice.' The 16-oz bottle listed its ingredients: kale, apple, mint, lemon and ginger. I had never purchased one of these juices before, but enough bickering trend pieces have been written about the stupidity or sanctity of the trend that I understood the general concept of the juice: Reset your metabolism, drink your calories, swap lunch for liquid. I handed over my credit card and the bottle of Joni Juice and learned something more startling about the impact of these juices. The cashier handed me the receipt. It cost $12. I gasped and requested a price check. He said, 'I'm sorry, I should have warned you.'" Anna Bahr, a columnist for The New York Times, commenting on the high cost of some cold pressed juices. The New York Times Aug. 14, 2014 "Veal leg bones now cost more than boneless, skinless chicken breasts. How crazy is that?" Pat LaFrieda, butcher and author of the forthcoming book "Meat: Everything You Need to Know," discussing the trend of using products formerly discarded as waste as food ingredients. The Wall Street Journal Aug. 13, 2014 "We really do believe the millennials are striving for a combination of what's real and also that moment of going a little bit against the grain so they can show their individuality." Laura Gordon, vice-president for marketing and brand innovation at 7-Eleven, discussing the company's selling of Slurpees in plastic mason jars. The "mason jars" are sold separately for $2.99.
