Organic and natural are two words that now determine how a lot of the world lives their everyday lives. As we discover and learn more and more about the food that we eat, people are becoming more aware of what they are putting in their bodies. Most people do not even really know what the words “organic” and “natural” mean, but still demand that they’re food be made out of only organic and natural ingredients.
Costco Wholesale, a large member-only warehouse club, is known for selling their items in huge bulk packages. Usually this food is frozen, canned or boxed, and not food you would normally think to have the “all natural” label on it. The food that comes to mind when you think of one of these stores is not the healthiest or freshest food out there. Costco has decided to respond to this new trend of eating food that had been produced with only fresh, organic and natural ingredients. There response is to support this trend and begin to carry and sell “organic” food. They are also trying something new by “working with farmers to help them buy land and equipment to grow organics.” They are following this trend to insure that they keep their strong customer base and also satisfy their customers to keep them coming back.
Although Costco is taking a big step in the right direction, we are still mostly eating processed food that is not healthy for us. Even the food that says “organic” and “natural” all over the package is not necessarily completely rid of any processed or unnatural ingredients. We should follow in Costco’s footsteps and all begin to find a way to make all of our food fresh, healthy and “organic”.
