Although our food supply is being controlled by a smaller and smaller number of corporations, the spread of knowledge outside of the controlled corporate channels has led to a food revolution.
With more Americans and people globally becoming aware of the dangerous substances hidden inside every meal they eat, food giants are having to submit to the demands of their customers or face the free-market consequences.
McDonald’s Sales Plummeting
Despite their attempts to introduce so-called “healthy” products, multiple scandals surrounding this fast food giant has resulted in a continuing nose dive of sales worldwide.
Even with their CEO recently stepping down and the introduction of a new advertising campaign, McDonalds has been unable to recover.
Chick-Fil-A Announces Chicken Change
Fast food chain Chick-fil-A announced late last year that they would no longer use chickens fed antibiotics following massive pressure from consumers.
“…we are collaborating with national and regional poultry suppliers to build a supply chain based on chickens raised with no antibiotics,” Chick-fil-A stated in a press release. “We are asking suppliers to work with the USDA to verify that antibiotics are never administered from the hatchery to the processing plant.”
Thanks to dedicated food activists, the company will be completely free of such ingredients within 5 years.
Monsanto Stocks Downgraded
Despite their global monopoly and stranglehold over governments, the public backlash against Monsanto has resulted in a continued downgrade of their stock.
“We are downgrading Monsanto from Buy to Neutral, due to the findings from our seventh Annual Seed Dealer Survey, which came back the most negative for the seed industry in the history of the survey,” Chris Shaw of Monness Crespi Hardt wrote last December. “The unprecedented results of this year’s survey has led us to be more cautious on Monsanto’s outlook for the current seed selling season.”
Subway Plans Removal of Shoe Rubber Chemical
Only days after infowarriors and the Food Babe Army came out against Subway for using dangerous chemicals in their bread, the sandwich provider announced the removal of the chemical.
“We are already in the process of removing Azodiacarbonamide as part of our bread improvement efforts despite the fact that it is USDA and FDA approved ingredient,” the company says in a statement, ignoring the fact that the chemical has been banned in countless countries. “The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon.”
