  • Credit where Credit is due -- to Wal-Mart!



    Interesting article about how Wal-Mart--yes, THAT Wal-Mart, is trying to develop more efficient ways to buy and distribute local, organic produce!

    Interesting, knowing Wal-Mart I'm sure it's all for good PR...

      I used to hate on Wal-Mart but hey their customer is demanding new, organic, natural products and they are responding. Let's not kid ourselves -- they are only in it because it means revenue but if they are supporting these farmers, then I am all for it.

        @ Baker - why would Walmart do anything except to make money? Or more to the point, why SHOULD they do anything except to make money? Customers want something, the business adapts to their wants.

          theres one reason why i go to wal-mart.

          because they carry thai kitchen coconut milk.

          HEB doesn't carry it, and actually only 1 out of the 4 wally worlds in my city carry the Thai kitchen brand.

          weird.

            I'm pleased that they're looking to improve their produce quality, but I have an easy enough time finding organic veggies. What I need is for more stores to start stocking affordable quality meats and offal.
            Give me liberty. Exploration of other options will be vigorously discouraged.

                Sorry, I may have come down a little hard there. I've been testy and "Profit motive = bad" is a trigger of mine that's been pushed far too much lately. I apologize Baker, if I seemed harsh there.

                  Most of Wal-Mart's and Costco's organic food products come from China. I'll believe they are going local when I see it with my own eyes.

                    I sympathize, LX. I get pretty cranky about that here in southern California.
