Foodopoly - Knowledge is power

Saturday, December 07, 2013

If you want to be an informed consumer when it comes to food you might enjoy this little quiz.
The more people learn about this the more likely we will have true freedom about where to buy our food.

If you want to continue to have a choice about where to get your food support small farmers and local producers whenever you can and skip the big box stores.

    I eat real food! raw organic fruits vegetables and greens. I support the local organic farmers and my local co-op that sells primarily organic produce.

    Brigit, that was a very interesting quiz. I scored 7 out of 10.
I posted it on my Facebook page as well.

  I was sure I would get 100% on this, and only got 70%! I was a little surprised!

    5/10, but purely from guessing. More than a little unsettling, especially the Walmart stat.

    I scored 6/10 but some of those questions seem overly dramatic or oddly targeted.

Consider the question about 3 companies making X% percentage of the bagged salads. Yes, there's an issue there but why did they have to include the #3 company which only had 5%? That implies there are many other companies competing - which is good. (Mathematically, at least 10 more could hold 4% of the market for the remaining 40%.) Anyway, how are we supposed to know about a company with a tiny fraction of the market.

The focus should have been on the two behemoth companies but I guess merely saying that they held 55% (which amounts to barely more than half) wasn't good enough.

In my opinion, two companies holding half the market is a very big deal and bears scrutiny.
