The recession doesn’t look to be slowing down that quickly, and thus, there have been loads of changes for food industries of all types. In good news, organic food sales are still increasing a smaller-but-still-steady rate of 7 percent, even when people are losing their jobs and could find it easier to buy cheaper, non-organics.
For consumers, there is more good news in the midst of the recession, as major retailers like Frito Lay have increased the size of their packages, without raising the prices. And, more and more retailers are bringing the food to the consumer, by loading up trucks and patrolling the streets, looking for customers, even though food cart owners in big cities are facing very tough times.
If all that isn’t enough, there are articles published every day that can help us do our own thing, which could save us money in the end – like building a geodesic dome solar greenhouse that could be used to grow your own food or gardening in a nice-sized box in your backyard.
